Why do we need Remoistening?

In the heatset web offset process the inks are dried with hot air. This is rapidly followed by a reduction in the water content of the paper, leading to considerable problems in the following processes.

Quality advantages
- Eliminates buckling of perfect bound cross grain products
- Prevents fibre breaking
- No growing of pages
- No climate waves (waviness)
- Reduction of tension waves (fluting)

Example Remoistening

The solution Electrostatic remoistening increases the water content in the paper after drying, returning to the level required.
