Taking as a guide for its content a review of the market volumes and growth areas, the course covers the formulation, application, manufacture and testing of inks, and reviews in the context of the inks, the substrates and the associated drying methods for all the various printing processes.
This three day course provides a firm foundation in the terminology and concepts used in print & printing ink technology. Beginning from a prospective gained from a quantitative review of the markets for printed material; the course covers the various printing processes, in the context of the substrates and inks needed for distinct applications. This leads to considerations of the examples for generic formulations, their application, the raw materials used for their manufacture, and testing of the inks for printing and service life performance. The course closely reflects the changes that are taking place in the industry. Information is supplied on minority topics and ‘Speciality Inks’.
The course is suitable for technical, commercial and sales staff who works 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 a 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 different parts of the material supply chain.
