Ink and Paint Binders
Compatibility, adhesion, post lamination
While selecting the proper binder for a water based lamination ink, there are 3 basic factors that have to be taken into consideration:
- Compatibility with the pigment paste and the rest of the formulation, to avoid uncontrolled variation in the viscosity or formation of lumps and gels
- Good adhesion on the support
- Post lamination after printing. With acrylic binders it will be impossible to achieve the same bonding strength, which is a key feature especially in the PVC flooring market. That is why PUD binder is a relevant option.
