EBECRYL® 657

EBECRYL® 657 is a polyester tetraacrylate developed specifically for ultraviolet light (UV) and electron beam (EB) cured lithographic ink formulations. It provides the proper hydrophilic-lipophilic balance necessary for lithography, good pigment wetting, and low misting. It can be blended with epoxy acrylates or EBECRYL® 436 or EBECRYL® 438 to increase cure speed. EBECRYL® 657 is recommended for: lithographic inks and varnishes, coatings on paper, metal, and plastic, and pigment grinding vehicles.
