Van Son Launches Vs4 Ink Formulated for Waterless Printing


Van Son Holland Ink Corporation announced the official launch of its waterless Vs4 ink. Specially designed to meet waterless printing needs, the Vs4 inks offer consistency and efficiency to printers and aid in the reduction of waste materials and ink consumption. The Vs4 line is compatible with all waterless plates and presses, contributing to a higher level of color quality and consistency throughout a press run.

Vs4 inks deliver a reliability that save printers time and money in operational expenses. Known to have the industry’s widest Critical Tone Temperature (CTT), Vs4 inks are capable of resisting toning and mottle in a broad range—63˚F - 97˚F. Additionally, the Vs4 line is formulated to deliver excellent press stability for quicker drying times, faster setting, and lower heat buildup, providing an excellent solution for printers looking to reduce their operational downtime and increase productivity.

The attributes of the waterless ink benefit not only a printer and its customers, but the planet as well. By reducing wasted paper materials and the volatile organic compounds that are associated with dampening usage, printers contribute to both forest conservation and efficient water conservation.

“We’re pleased to release an ink that supports waterless printing,” said John Sammis, vice president of sales and marketing for Van Son. “Waterless ink is a cutting-edge technology that offers printers so many benefits.  Our Vs4 line will provide better color saturation, faster make-readies, and increased printing temperature capability, while answering the environmental concerns that are so important to printers today.”
