Consumables for presses

For offset presses:

  • We supply inks for both conventional and UV applications as well as special colors. These range from CMYK process sets to customized color matches.
  • In addition to their protective function, the wide range of Saphira coatings gives products additional refinement and a more aesthetic appeal. You are sure to find the right product for optimal and consistent varnish transfer.
  • Saphira blankets ensure precise pressure transmission and trouble-free ink transfer. We offer a very wide range of top-quality blankets for all requirements.
  • Because only factory-approved rubber compounds are used to produce Saphira rollers, Saphira ink and dampening rollers deliver high quality printed results over a long lifespan.
  • Saphira pressroom chemicals help achieve high quality printing results. They include washes, fountain solutions, alcohol substitutes, and other press chemicals.
  • You should also aim for perfection when selecting ink duct foils, wash-up cloths and spray powders.
