ISO 2846-1:2006 Preview
Graphic technology -- Colour and transparency of printing ink sets for four-colour printing -- Part 1: Sheet-fed and heat-set web offset lithographic printing
This standard was last reviewed and confirmed in 2015. Therefore this version remains current.
ISO 2846-1:2006 specifies the colour and transparency characteristics that have to be met by each ink in a process colour ink set intended for proof and production printing using offset lithography. The specified printing conditions (which use a laboratory printability tester), the defined substrate and a method for testing to ensure conformance are also defined. Characteristics are specified for inks used for sheet-fed, heat-set web and radiation-curing processes.
