Abstract : Isopropanol is used in lithographic fountain solutions to reduce waste, attain ink/water balance more rapidly and allow pressmen greater latitude in operating the press. Isopropanol is volatile, and under certain conditions may yield hazardous conditions. The purpose of this project was to determine the chemical or physical function of alcohol and, if possible, to develop a fountain solution which does not have its objectionable features. (Author)
