Tim, My initial impression is that it would probably be difficult to
find a water-based ink that would dry quickly enough for the
high-speed application you mention. I suggest you contact either
Tom Estock ( 414/246-2082) or John Imes (414/246-2080) at QuadGraphics,
which does quite a bit of ink-jet printing and have a very
progressive P2 program. Please let Printech know if you find a
solution. -Wayne
