How do I increase the drying speed of the inks or coatings?

For Colors:

We recommend our Sensitizer #7 (8209) for pigmented inks. It can be used in all Kolorcure ink lines starting at a 3% Add, increasing up to 10% Maximum if needed.

This product will not affect shelf-life.

For very Light Colors call for an alternative as it will slightly yellow or shift the shade of the ink.

For Coatings:

We recommend our Sensitizer #3 (8208) starting at a 3% Add, increasing up to 10% Maximum if needed.

This product does not yellow or affect shelf-life.
