Ink takes on too little or too much press mix during emulsification.
|Poor ink/water balance||Re-balance ink/water. See Ink/Water balance|
|Poor compatibility between ink and fountain solution (Ink is too soft or tacky to allow a controlled emulsification process. Fountain solution is too aggressive to the ink breaking it down too quickly.)||Consult with both your ink and fountain solution manufacturer for better matched ink and fountain solution.|
