Applications

3-Methoxy Butanol is a clear, colorless and water miscible alcohol that is low toxic and biodegradable with a high flash point. It is a good solubilizer and is very stable against autoxidation. It is used in the ink and coating industries as a solvent.

Applications

3-Methoxy butyl Acetate is used as a solvent in oil-based pigmented ink composition which is excellent in ejection property in case of printing using an ink-jet printer and is excellent in drying property and fixing property in case of printing on a low cost printing medium such as a PVC film having no receptive layer

Applications

Our derivatives of cellulose acetate are used as solvents and resins for viscosity modulation, release, binding and other purposes.

Applications

Due to its low toxicity and agreeable odor, Ethyl Acetate has applications as a solvent in inks for flexographic and rotogravure printing,

Applications

Ethyl Lactate found industrial applications in specialty coatings, inks, cleaners and straight use cleaning because of their high performance and versatility.

Applications

Methylal may also be employed in compositions for the treatment of materials formed of a polymerised vinyl compound for the purpose of dyeing, printing, loading, vaporizing prior to polishing or otherwise applying materials to the external surfaces thereof.

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.
