Occasionally, on the bottoms of screens, inks will build-up causing printers costly down time when they have to stop the press and wipe ink from the bottoms of screens. This can happen due to shop conditions, screen tension, an ink not made to be printed wet on wet is being printed wet-on-wet or a myriad of other reasons beyond the printer and ink manufacturer’s control.

If this happens, an addition of 10% by weight of Excalibur’s Low-Build-Up Additive (ABA) will greatly reduce build-up and minimize down time of your press.
