The fount solution
The fount solution plays a vital role in the offset printing process: it is a key factor in obtaining high quality prints (contrast between solid print areas and half tones, gloss, etc.). A well adjusted fount solution is also synonymous with economies, particularly in terms of setting up the press.

Therefore, for the printer, ascertaining and obtaining the most suitable fount solution for the printing process is justified for both qualitative and economic reasons.

In order to properly control the fount solution, it is important firstly to determine the properties of the tap water before understanding the different characteristics of the fount solution.
