FountMax - High-performance, state-of-the-art solutions
Maximising print quality, minimising downtime, reducing print costs through less wastage; increasing machine speeds and achieving environmentallyfriendly operation. They’re all clear challenges when running a modern print factory – and FountMax helps you achieve them all.
The result of years of research and expertise, our unique FountMax formulas enable machines to run on the lowest possible IPA levels. IPA-free formulations are also available for heatset and sheet-fed presses. Fount consumption is minimal, paper build-up is reduced, wash intervals are extended and ink drying times are shortened.
When using non-absorbent sheet-fed substrates, cobalt-free formulations - featuring the latest drying (iso EcoDry) technology - are also available.
WashMax - Thorough roller & blanket washes, with environmental benefits
Increased environmental legislation means the printing industry constantly requires greener, safer solutions with effective cleaning power for blankets, rollers and other press parts. FUJIFILM has responded with WashMax. The range includes VOC-free washes that minimise the environmental impact associated with solvent-based washing, yet still provide a dry blanket after cleaning.
The benefits of using WashMax include a healthier working environment, plus an absolute minimum of wastage following machine re-start. As wash-filtration steadily grows in demand, the WashMax range also comprises solutions engineered for multi-use when used in a controlled filtration process. Achieving unrivalled removal of ink and paper build-up, washes are water-miscible and meet the strict material compatibility and corrosion protection guidelines of FOGRA.
CoatMax - Add value to your products
CoatMax adds value to your products with a near infinite range of coating effects.
Combining your pressroom expertise with the right coatings can certainly reap dividends - by helping you achieve the personalised finishing that customers increasingly expect. Through the CoatMax range of water-based and UV coatings, FUJIFILM provides a virtually limitless choice of visual effects – all while achieving the highest standards of product protection and meeting your specific requirements.
Choosing CoatMax UV finishes opens up a whole world of moods and atmospheres. Water-based CoatMax super-gloss finishes rival the gloss qualities of UV. High-gloss coated double-sided effects are achieved with ease. Providing superb results whatever the substrate — along with trouble-free application, fast drying, high wet block and rub resistance — CoatMax products offer the versatility you need.
Fujifilm Spray Powders
The best print quality in the most economical way, that is our objective. To achieve this you might need a little help from our protective spray powders.
By using our ECOPOWDER-series, you will be able to minimize the amount of powder to be sprayed on the printed sheet, assuring an adequate protection and avoiding any disturbing excess of powder even at the highest printing speed.
SilMax - Protective silicone emulsions based on state-of-the-art technologies
Even with today’s ever-increasing web widths and speeds, modern heatset presses are expected to produce high-quality printed material at exceptional rates. Ensuring the finest quality, however, can only be achieved by applying a protective re-moistening emulsion immediately after the drying stage. This will shield the printed web during conversion into a folded brochure.
Formulated especially to provide the highest levels of protection, the components in the SilMax range of silicone emulsions have antistatic properties and include polymer additives for the streak-free throughput of numerous paper substrates.
GlueMax - Securing your reputation at the finishing stage and heatset
Right up to the finishing stage, PRESSMAX brings you the best available pressroom chemistry – so you can deliver the finest solutions direct to your customer.
Available in different formulations, our GlueMax range has been developed for all graphic arts finishing applications and will ensure the best performance on your finishing line. GlueMax includes specific polymer formulas for inline print finishing on both coldset and heatset press configurations, with application by all common gluing devices.
In addition, specialist GlueMax solutions are also available for packaging and the most challenging finishing requirements of the graphic arts markets.
XtraMax - A complete range of auxiliaries for smooth production
The most efficient production process involves various measures before, during and after the actual printing stage. Frequently, printing sundries can be critical side factors determining whether the printing process is of a high quality, efficient and economical.
To accomplish this, the comprehensive range of our auxiliaries offers you the best solution. Maintenance products, cleaning and drying agents, powders, sprays and many other specialty products provide users with valuable aid during daily routine work.
