Misting or Slinging

Roller train is too hot

Form roller temperatures should be 72°-80°F (22°-26°C). Higher temperatures will lower the tack and viscosity of the ink, lower temperatures will increase the body of the ink

Ink/water setting is out of balance

Check chemistry for pH, conductivity, Brix level and temperature. Adjust settings to run minimum amounts of ink and water

Too much ink is being carried in an effort to achieve the desired density

If possible, substitute a stronger ink to reduce the ink film thickness on the rollers or run as a double hit

Rollers are worn or improperly set

Check rollers for damage and settings

Ink tack is too low

If possible, increase tack to maximum allowable for substrate being printed. Consult your ink supplier
