About Ink Additives
Ink additives are the chemical substances that are used in small quantities in printing ink formulations. They are commonly water-based or solvent-based, depending on the technology. Ink additives enhance the performance of the ink and printing by acting as dispersants, wetting agents, defoamers, and driers. They are added at the time of formulation or on the press side. The defoamers are commonly used during the pigment milling, ink manufacturing, and printing processes. The dispersants are used for improved color development and increased mill output.
