To all of you on PRINTECH:
The message below came to me via another listserv, P2TECH.
Since it's about printing, I passed it on to you for
comment. I'll send back on P2TECH any useful responses
sumbitted. Thanks. Let's show the P2TECHers what we can
do!

Thanks for the quick responses regarding ink skinning. In
regards to this subject, some ink waste is inevitable. When
skinning occurs can the skins be reversed back to ink. We
think we know of a recycler that can reblend ink waste into
black ink, but would like to know of anyone else in the
business. Again, this is offset ink which recyclers avoid
reblending due to it containing drying agents. Also, a
couple of you mentioned anti-skinning agents. We know of
one called "Economist" that some printers use. Does anyone
have information regarding this product or other products
that prevent and/or reduce skinning? Does anyone have
documented case studies on waste min. and savings incurred
as a result of implementing a procedure that promotes
anti-skinning? Sorry about the number of questions so close
to the holiday

Thanks in advance
