Ink coatings on specialty films

Coating Application - Viscosity solution dedicated to ink coatings on specialty films


Inline viscosity measurement stands out as the most reliable way to ensure quality and uniform applications on paper, film, and specialty substrates.

Failure to maintain the proper viscosity setting causes inefficiency with bad batches, increased manufacturing costs, as well as quality and reputation issues.

The installation of one inline viscometer in the ink tank allows exact and continuous ink monitoring. It adjusts the viscosity according to temperature, flow, pigments, solvent addition, chemical reactions, and additional required characteristics.


Key product characteristics :

  • Permanent operation with no drift in time
  • No cleaning
  • Sensitivity in high and low viscosities
  • Tolerant to particles

Generally, the implementation of Sofraser inline MIVI sensors on the printing presses nets overall ink consumption saving of 5%, generating ROI in about one year.

The installation of the Sofraser MIVI inline viscometer improves ink printing quality by ensuring color continuity, it provides consistency through homogeneity and uniformity, and maximizes printing speeds.
