BASF PU Dispersion Aids Flexpack Inks


WYANDOTTE, MI | BASF has introduced Joncryl FLX 5200, called an innovation in water-based polymer technology for flexible packaging applications.

Film printing inks based on this PU dispersion are said to exhibit high lamination bond strength balanced with good transfer and printability and compatibility with standard ink-making ingredients for enhanced formulation flexibility.

“Improved printability along with the adhesion and wetting characteristics on PET, OPP, PE and nylon substrates now makes it possible to formulate water-based lamination inks with bond strengths suitable for most food packaging applications,” says Richard Grandke, industry manager—Printing & Packaging, Dispersions and Pigments for BASF in North America.
