Forerunner to the new generation of fountain solutions
Water contains minerals, acids, and salts. When mixed with ink during the printing process, these chemicals break open the delicate pigment/varnish formula. With an ordinary fountain solution concentrate, this situation can cause uncontrolled emulsification, ink piling on the blanket, color variation on start-ups and increased dot gain. Alco Plus contains chemistry to sequestrate minerals and salts, especially calcium carbonate and magnesium - the most common ink hazard. Sequestration means to neutralize or literally wrap up these minerals and salts by altering their chemical structure. The net result is a foundation solution that does not break down the ink!

Improved print performance
The first thing pressman notice when running Alco Plus is that they have to come down on their ink settings. By not attacking the pigment/varnish balance, the pressman is able to get a stronger color out of the ink. Dots pull cleaner and sharper, especially in shadow areas. Color comes back quicker on start-ups with less variation.
