NORIS 199RM refresher/solvent bottle. For use with Noris 199 stamp ink.
There is an issue that the ink dries out in the pad as the ink dries out not every part of the ink leaves the pad. The binding agents, dyestuff and other ingredients remain in the pad. So if you re-ink the pad using the normal ink, you add those remains to the new ink. Over time this process changes the ink in the pad more and more. This will lead to a sticky problem. Some people describe it as muddy.
To prevent it, Noris have created the Noris 199 Refresher for the ink. As the pad dries out, or is already dry like rock hard, please use the refresher first. It will add to the pad those missing liquid ingredients. Please use a few drops of refresher on the pads and then rub the refresher in the pad using a small blunt stick type of thing. Once softened you can stamp again. Please note that over time the imprint will get weaker/faded, as the refresher doesn’t add any colour, dyestuff or pigment to the pad. So when the imprint gets to weak, use the normal ink again for re-inking. Afterwards the cycle begins anew.
Also it pays to remove the ink pad from the stamp, replace the cap and store in an airtight container if not being used for more than two days at a time, another way is wrap it in plastic cling film excluding as much air as possible. Given time we have found the rubber die can stick to the ink pad a bit, sometimes ripping the rubber die off the stamp especially on the little ones. The pad can also dry completely and no longer absorb ink, see above for the remedy.
We highly recommend using the 199 Refresher/solvent as well to keep the ink fluid. This can also bring a pad back from dry and unusable to usable again if stamping infrequently. If using infrequently and having no refresher on hand means having to have an insurance policy of having a spare dry pad for that occasion when you need to get some work done and a useless pad for the stamp.
