<< Your request for information on corrosion on a lithographic press is easy
if it is in the usual areas. Usually corrosion is on the plate cylinder
caused by fountain solution leaching through the packing paper under the
plate. Solution -- Use pressure sensitive mylar packing available from a
number of sources including Unique Press Products 606-262-5225 and others. If
you do not pack your plates then rust inhibitors will have to be applied to
the cylinder.
 Is this where the corrosion is occurring?
 If not, let me know where, the age of the press, manufacturer, and model.
