Advances in Printing Science and Technology, Volume 5: Inks, Plates and Print Quality provides information pertinent to printing ink as a rheologically complex material. This book presents a theoretical analysis of a roller system carrying a thin film of printing ink. Organized into 19 chapters, this volume begins with an overview of the experimental study concerning the properties of the liquid and the geometry of the roller system. This text then describes the use of roller systems to assess the behavior of printing inks, which began with the development of the Inkometer by Reed. Other chapters explore the behavior of printing inks between rotating rollers, which is descriptive of tack. This book discusses as well the factors involved in the rheological description of an ink, including the flow properties, the thixotropy, and the tack for describing the behavior of the ink. The final chapter deals with the thickening of the newsprint at low printing speed. This book is a valuable resource for graphic arts research workers, papermakers, and ink manufacturers.
