Anyone experience of using Water Soluble paste in pump printing heads, either Dek proflow or Rheopump. Thanks in advance, RA.

Rich,

I use water soluble in a DEK Proflow unit. We can print faster (about 4 times faster), and the paste lasts much longer than it being exposed to air. In addition to this, the prints we have now are even better than with a squeegee. I havn't been using it for too long (about 2 months), so I'm a still a little skeptical as to possible long term problems.
