BASF has introduced Joncryl® FLX 5200, a new innovation in water-based polymer technology for flexible packaging applications.
Film printing inks based on Joncryl® FLX 5200 polyurethane dispersion, the newest addition to BASF’s FLX portfolio of products specifically for flexible packaging, exhibits:
- 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,” said Richard Grandke, Industry Manager – Printing & Packaging, Dispersions and Pigments for BASF in North America.
