Ink Jet Materials

Dispersants

Water-based, solvent-based, and monomer-based additives.

Dyes

Water-based, solvent-based, and monomer-based dyes.

Pigment Dispersions

Water-based, solvent-based, and monomer-based dispersions.

Polymerization Inhibitors

Additives for UV inkjet applications.

Polymeric Microparticles

Crosslinked acrylic and styrenic microspheres. Suited for waterborne and solvent-borne systems. Excellent dispersability in paint formulations. Excellent compatibility with coated film. Durable matte or soft-feel coating, which has superior scratch and mar resistance.

UV-Curable Coatings Materials

Mono- and multi-functional aliphatic epoxy crosslinkers, reactive diluents, and modifiers. Grades include high functionality, varying degrees of water solubility, low chlorine content, hydroxyl functionality, and bio-based content. Low viscosity and non yellowing. Provides good adhesion to metal and nylon substrates.

Mono- and multi-functional cycloaliphatic epoxies. Grades include low viscosity, good transparency, high heat resistance, high Tg, and good electrical properties. Non-yellowing with high flexibility and toughness. Suitable for thermal cure or UV cure (cationic).

Hydroxy-functional epoxy acrylates and methacrylates for UV/EB-curable ink, coating, and adhesive applications.
