Resins with excellent melting & flow for Thermographic Printing

  • Excellent melting
  • Excellent flow

The thermographic process combines a printing ink with a thermographic powder, made from resin, which is then heated at high temperature for a few seconds so that the thermographic powder rises to give the ink a raised, textured and tactile effect.  Are you looking for resins to use in your thermographic printing process?  You’ve come to the right place.  Allnex’s unsaturated polyesters, UVECOAT® 3001 and UVECOAT® 9010 have been used for many years and have the perfect characteristics for formulating your thermographic powders.

Test our new booster for LED curing

  • LED curing
  • Low migration with excellent adhesion
  • Flexography and inkjet inks

Having performance issues with LED curing? EBECRYL® LED 03 and LED 04 boost surface curing without losing performance when cured with UV LED lamps. These products are designed for low migration use in packaging coatings and inks. EBECRYL® LED 03 is specifically designed for flexo and inkjet inks and varnishes (OPV) while EBECRYL® LED 04 is specifically designed for litho inks and with favorable labelling vs. standard boosting synergists.
 

Best ink receptivity on challenging substrates

  • Excellent ink receptivity
  • Excellent adhesion to various plastic substrates
  • Great barrier to PVC migration

Our DAOTAN® TW 6490/35WA or DAOTAN® TW 6495/35WA​ products when used as adhesive primers on different plastic substrates provide excellent ink receptivity. This allows printability on plastic and also acts as a barrier to PVC migration. These products have a low VOC content.

We also have UV solutions. Our UCECOAT 7850 offers good adhesion to plastic substrates while UCECOAT 2804 offers a low migration UV solution.
 

Want to reduce or eliminate photo-intiators? Test our Solutions!

  • UV LED booster
  • easy to handle polymeric benzophenone
  • self-curing resins

With growing concerns on photo-initiator migration for packaging coatings and inks, allnex has 3 ways it can help:
EBECRYL® LEO Self Curing Resins, EBECRYL® LED 03 & LED 04 UV LED boosters and polymeric photo-intiator EBECRYL® P 39.
 

Pioneering waterborne UV for inkjet

  • Reduced cost
  • No odor or labeling
  • Low viscosity even at room temperature

Current inkjet ink technology uses heat and mono functional monomers to reduce viscosity for jetting.  Water is less expensive, less regulated, has no odor, and can provide low migration. UCECOAT® 2800 series products are the premier waterborne UV resins for use in inkjet inks

 

Check out our new 10-minute allnex Insights webinar by Dr. JoAnn Arceneaux: “Waterborne Solutions For Next Generation Inkjet Inks”!

The topics:

• Principles of waterborne UV technology
• Strategy for novel low migration UV PUDs
• Selection guide for inkjet inks
• Main technical requirements for inkjet inks
• Test results of UCECOAT® 2801, 2802, 2803, 2804, 2805 and 2806
