Product of the Week 7-22-19

Product of the week is KS-190 KY Shine High Body Press Stable Gloss OPV. This aqueous overprint varnish can be applied to paper, paperboard, Xerox, and HP Indigo through the inking unit of a sheetfed offset press. KS-190 provides excellent gloss as well as good rub and scuff resistance. Along with our KY Shine OPVs we always recommend using KS-702 KY Shine Blanket and Roller Spray. KS-702 is applied with a spray bottle onto the surface of the blanket and rollers before and after the KY Shine product is put on the press. This helps to clean and condition the surface to better accept the KY Shine OPV.

Other features of KS-190:

  • Exceptional set and dry speed
  • Enhanced press stability
  • Not for two sided printing

Mike Kukowski (1943-2019)

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our colleague, Mike Kukowski. Mike was a valued member of Kustom Group, working with us for nearly 30 years in sales for the East Coast.

Loved by his customers and fellow employees alike, Mike was quick with a smile and a laugh. When a customer called, he answered his phone with a jovial, “Hey guy!” He also was knowledgeable about sports of all kinds and especially shared his love of baseball and football with us.

Information on a service of remembrance and celebration of his life is located here.
