Resins for printing inks and overprint varnishes

BTC’s product line of resins covers solvent borne and radiation curable printing inks and overprint varnishes. Laroflex offers a range of established raw materials for gravure printing applications on packaging. Acronal L and F as well as Lutonal® products are recommended as adhesion promoters.

The use of these soft resins significantly increases adhesion especially on composite polymer films. For solvent-free printing inks and overprint varnishes BTC Europe provides the Laromer raw materials for the formulation of resistant radiation curing silk-screen, offset and flexographic printing inks. This product range is rounded off by the Lucirin products - photoinitiators for highly pigmented low odour printing inks.
