The standard equipment of each bindery is also worth. Waterless offset printing does not require dampening water, so VOC emissions are 60% to 80% lower than with wet processes. The special ink and EB curing-based process eliminate the need for solvents.

Liquids that clean printing units are free of organic solvents, for zero VOC consumption in cleaning processes. Toray, the leader in innovative solutions for waterless offset printing, today reported that Gulf News, the largest circulated English-language newspaper in the United Arab Emirates, has been using now for a couple of years the Koenig & Bauer Cortina waterless offset press with 12 towers, of which four are heatset, and is using the Toray IMPRIMA WA waterless offset plates.

Waterless printing, which is gaining momentum across Europe, is an offset lithographic printing system that eliminates the water or dampening system used in conventional printing.

As the water is eliminated from the printing process, so are the chemicals that are mixed into the water in order to optimize the fount solution.

Printing accuracy, stability, color control, materials consumption, and other criteria were analyzed to determine the current differential in printing performance between waterless printing and conventional offset lithographic printing processes.

The white paper reveals several key waterless benefits. There are sub-categories of the regular offset inks for ultra violet printing (which lends itself to resist the sun's deteriotion of some colors), plastic printing, and the latest for waterless printing. (Many thanks to my uncle in the printing ink industry.) 6.

There are many arguments on advantages and disadvantages of waterless offset printing. One of the most important factors affecting successful use is the temperature rise on the plate, since no dampening water is applied to the plate.

In this study, the temperature rise of waterless offset printing operations on various presses was estimated using only observed temperature data. The AQ Contrast Enhancer is an eco-friendly post treatment for waterless offset printing plates that enhances the contrast after CTP-exposed waterless plates.

It is specifically designed for the use with punch-bending and sorting equipment that need plates with an excellent contrast. ‘Waterless offset printing is the most environmentally sustainable method of offset printing.The waterless offset [9], such as Codimag, are eco-friendly because it doesn't need to consume water.

This is an advantage for all the processes; thanks to the absence of chemical balance the printing is stable, faster and has higher definition.
