Recently, Fogra provided the first web offset printing condition based on the new ISO 12647-2:2013 with the printing condition FOGRA54. Fogra 54 describes standardised offset printing in AM screen (48-70’cm) on supercalendered B-substance material (SC-B) with mineral oil-free printing inks.
The ECI writes: “Mainly due to paper differences, the printing condition on today’s SC-B paper types no longer matches the characterization data set FOGRA40 and the profile »SC paper (ECI)«. As a consequence, when printing on SC-B paper, printers face significant problems to achieve the ink solid aim values of »FOGRA40« and the higher saturated colour appearance of »SC Paper« proof prints. In addition new aim values, especially new dot gain curves of the international printing standard ISO12647-2:2013) are reflected in the new printing condition.
