In print for over thirty years, The Printing Ink Manual, published on behalf of the Society of British Printing Ink Manufacturers, is the industry 'bible' for all printing ink technologists, manufacturers, packaging and publishing printers all over the world. Thoroughly revised and updated throughout, the new material present in this fifth edition reflects the substantial developments that have taken place in recent years, including: The dramatic expansion in the use of lithographic inks with particular attention to cold-set, head-set, sheet-set, sheet-fed and web offset and metal decorating inks. The use of flexographic inks in newspaper printing Ink-jet inks: a complete new chapter has been added The most recent theories of high-speed measurements in the rheology of inks The European Quality Assurance Standards ISO 9000 The latest legislation on health, safety and the environment. £/LIST£ All chapters have been reviewed, updated and expanded wherever needed. Further important features include a listing of all the raw materials used regularly in the manufacture of printing inks, giving full information on their physical and chemical properties. Formulation technology is fully illustrated with practical examples and the significance of environmental issues and quality management is also covered in detail. Legislation, mainly European and from the United States, together with specifications set by world-wide end-users have established printing ink as a truly international product. Many of the chapters in The Printing Ink Manual have been written by authors working for international companies to ensure that the contents include the widest international practices and The Printing Ink Manual therefore represents an international reference source which is used throughout the world.
