Problem with weak solids? Sun Chemical has finally added coldset web to its online troubleshooting guide.

The mobile-friendly website already tackled issues for heatset and energy curable printing, so coldset was an omission.

The company has also added metal package printing processes to a list which includes common technical defects with flexo, sheetfed, paper packaging and gravure. Find it at

The website uses both photos and defect terms such as dot gain, pinholes, feathering and comets, to help identify the problem and either read up on it there or use a print function tool.

Translations in Italian, Spanish and Turkish can be accessed Sun Chemical's Ink + Pressroom website section.

Global inks marketing and communications manager Heather Buchholz says customers need to keep pressrooms running smoothly and limit downtime. "This online and mobile-friendly solution can help them resolve common problems they see on press."
