Linting and Picking

Ink is too tacky for the stock being run

Reduce tack only enough to eliminate the problem

Stock has insufficient lint or pick resistance

Change stock. Install a brush or vacuum type paper cleaner, or pre-coat on spare first unit

Ink is poorly ground

Consult your Sun Chemical representative

Ink/water balance is improper

Adjust ink/water balance

Blanket is too tacky

Treat blanket surface to reduce tack. Change to a less tacky blanket. Check blanket wash solution

Blanket is improperly packed

Correct packing (under packing as well as overpacking causes picking)

Ink film is too thin

Use a weaker ink to better release from blankets
