5512-MD Cobalt Drier
Superior’s strongest drier, 5512-MD helps to increase rub resistance. Therefore, it is highly recommended when printing on substrates with little or no absorption such as plastics and foils. It is the best drier to use with difficult drying colors such as reflex blue and black.
Caution should be used when added to light colors as 5512-MD may cause slight discoloration. It’s also prone to dry on press rollers, possibly causing ink refusal of subsequent colors when attempting to trap over a the previous down dry ink film.
Recommended Usage: Add 1/8 to 1/4 ounce per pound of ink.
Note: Excessive additions of 5512-MD may cause drying on press rollers and may retard drying on the printed sheet. For additional guidance on the use of this press additive, please contact your local branch or sales representative.
