    Are u taliking about waterless inks? I assume yes, cuz of your nickname, and your resent problems on your blanket washup devices. Stick with the Toyo inks. If you want to change, go for the Sunchemical because you get less stripes.

    No, Saphira does not offer waterless inks to my knowledge.

    This ink runs just fine, if there is a problem with the wash system, try a different wash.

    Hi,I have tried Saphira process inks,I found them to be slow drying,especially on card stock,prone to marking on back side of sheet,and,also had problems with this ink Picking on backup of a w&t on 80lb coated stock....Switched back to Hostmann inks,no more problems....Pete

    all of the major ink manufacturers offer more than one option when it comes to their products. Talk to a knowledgeable ink rep and tell him of your concerns and he will offer a solution. The inks that you referred to as not very duct fresh will dry better on the sheet. The inks that won't skin in the can for 2 weeks will usually be longer to cure on the sheet and offer challenges in post press operations. Pick your poison!!!
