Glossary of Printing Terms:
Thixotropy

The characteristic of certain viscous substances to become less viscous through mechanical action (stirring).

Thixotropic materials are used in offset printing inks to enhance the quality of multi-color printing.

The lower viscosity inks in the inking unit solidify to a certain degree on the printing stock before drying, and additional printing processes are thus optimized.
