Packaging and Printing inks

Applications

1,3 Butylene glycol is used as an additive in the packaging and printing industries. Its non reactive nature gives the packaging durability and strength

Applications

2-Ethyl-1,3-Hexanediol is used for promoting the penetration of an ink in a paper.

Applications

Acetaldehyde is a naturally occuring by-product of PET processing and can adversly affect the taste of packaged products. The important derivatives of acetaldehyde are used to make printing inks

Applications

Cellulose derivatives such as cellulose acetate are used as ink resorvoirs in fibre tip pens

Applications

Food-grade waxes and wax blends are used in laminating compounds and surface coatings to provide strength, to waterproofing, and improve appearance and moisture-vapor transmission. graphical printing inks include wax in their formulation as an anti-scuff agent.

Ideal packaging is a vital element of logistics. Wide range of factors such as increasing health awareness and demand for consumer goods has made packaging a critical component of everyday life. We assist packaging material manufacturers by providing optimum quality chemistry.

Printing dates back to 2nd century. Printing ink is a fundamental necessity of packaging, advertising and publishing. We strive to provide a sustainable and ecologically safe solution for your printing ink needs. The raw materials of printing inks mainly comprise pigments, resins, solvents and additives. 

Pigments are used to colour the ink and make it opaque. 

Resins bind the ink together into a film and bind it to the printing surface. 

Solvents make the ink flow so that it can be transferred to the printing surface.

Additives alter the physical properties of the ink to suit different situations.
