Printing Ink – Flexographic, Gravure, Inkjet Printing Ink Binders

In collaboration with producers of printing inks, we developed ideal 'cationic' acrylic binders and styrene-acrylic binders for gravure printing inks, flexographic printing inks, and inkjet printing inks.
These binders strictly comply with the demands and requirements of the printing on corrugated cardboard, composite materials, envelopes, flexible packaging, paper packaging, and coating. These binders are applied as vehicle for water-based mat overprint varnishes (OPV) and vehicle for increasing the hiding power in water-based gravure printing inks and flexographic printing inks, holding together the other ingredients of ink such as pigments, solvents, and additives so that it forms a film, enabling the ink to adhere to the material surface onto which it is printed, and exhibiting gloss, resistance to heat, chemicals and water.

Printing inks using ACRYCOTE® polymers will outperform conventional resins in areas of flow, hold-out, gloss and solubility. Whether used in gravure printing, flexographic printing, or inkjet printing inks, our ACRYCOTE® emulsions ensure superior adhesion, sharpness and color richness with an array of substrates.
In particular, ACRYCOTE® AF-7802 is a styrene-acrylic copolymer non-film-forming emulsion for use in water-based OPV and flexographic-printing ink, providing high heat seal and film release properties. The heat resistant properties may be further enhanced by the addition of zinc ammonium carbonate solution. In OPV, ACRYCOTE® AF-7802 additionally provides gloss and optical clarity.
