Comments: Crystagloss QS is a freeflowing, medium-tack quickset vehicle. Crystagloss QS is best suited for making high gloss quickset inks with good flow and moderate viscosity. Crystagloss QS is drier reactive, having a significant quantity of oxidizing vegetable oils. New for 2000: Kerley Ink has improved the oxidation speed of the resins used in Crystagloss QS, meaning inks will cure even faster to a tough, flexible film.

Crystagloss QS is also low in VOCs, having significantly less than 20% total volatiles by weight, so it's 50-state legal. If you want gloss, Crystagloss QS is the only way to go for inks so bright, you'll need to wear shades.
