TOPSTAR 06 3000 – most brilliant offset ink of the entire portfolio

The new leafing, one-component printing ink TOPSTAR 06 3000 Brilliant Silver represents the most brilliant ink alternative to foil stamping and metallized substrates.

The conventional, mineral oil-based ink was developed on the basis of PVD pigments. The result is a highly brilliant, mirror-like appearance.

Despite the leafing characteristics of the product, it is possible to create imitation gold or various multicolor effects by overprinting and tinting.

TOPSTAR 06 3000 Brilliant Silver is wax and cobalt free. The ink is suitable for all offset machines, allowing a good printability also at high machine speeds.
