Fountain solution additives

Fountain solution additives of HANNS EGGEN have set standards for process reliability in offset printing with modern highly productive sheet-fed and web offset presses in recent years. In particular, they help reduce the isopropyl alcohol used in fountain solution or even allow IPA-free printing. Our fountain solution provide quick clearing of printing plates, fast and stable ink-/water balance at low water flow and are optimised for protection of plates and reduction of microbial contamination of the system.

Calibrated underlay sheets

Exactly calibrated slip-resistant underpacking sheets, available in 9 thicknesses and all common sizes
up to 166 x 127 cm.
Special impregnation against penetration of moisture thus undesired swelling of the underlay sheets. Defined colour-thickness assignment facilitates precise adjustment of optimum cylinder rolling in the press, a basic requirement for todays' high-quality offset printing.

About us

Company details

HANNS EGGEN was founded in 1933 in Hannover and in its beginnings mainly manuctured emulsions and rubber coatings for analogue offset printing plates. Over the years the company developed into one of the most reputable manufacturers of pre-coated printing plates.

In the mid-nineties, HANNS EGGEN started to produce fountain solution additives and, in the following years, developed pioneering, environmentally friendly additives for the reduction of isopropyl alcohol in the fountain solutions. In 1999, the owner Axel Thölen took over company management and expanded the chemical product range in particular.

Nowadays HANNS EGGEN is not only a manufacturer of traditional printing consumables , such as developers, plate cleaners and gumming, but in addition produces other important printing chemicals such as silicone emulsions for web offset printing, dispersion varnishes, cleaning chemicals, adhesives and much more. Due to the need to expand capacities, the company moved to Brüggen on the Lower Rhine in 2007. There about 40 employees manufacture more than 50,000 kgs of chemicals per day.

Environmentally friendly and high-quality raw material systems in best combination with customer-oriented product development and highly developed quality control form the basis of a successul company history.

HANNS EGGEN is certified according to ISO 9001 by TÜV Rheinland and as a training company recognised by the German Chamber of Industry and Commerce.
