This three day course continues to provide a firm foundation in the terminology and concepts used in print & printing ink technology. The course covers the formulation, application, manufacture and testing of inks, and reviews in the context of the inks and substrates all the various printing processes.
The course continues to closely reflect the changes that are taking place in the industry; increased emphasis on non-contact printing and more information on minority topics such as ‘Speciality Inks’.
Laboratory demonstrations illustrate some of the features of rheology, and the drying and testing of inks.
The course is aimed towards technical, commercial and sales staff who work for ink manufacturers, printing companies or suppliers of raw materials to the graphic arts industries. It can be especially beneficial to newcomers to the industry, enabling them to gain an initial foothold of knowledge and familiarity with the terms and concepts. It is equally advantageous to those with experience in one area of the technology who wish to broaden their knowledge in other printing techniques or more parts of the supply chain.
