With its excellent binding and film-forming capabilities, WALSRODER™ Nitrocellulose is used in a wide range of applications such as printing inks, wood coatings, nail polishes, leather and industrial coatings.
ETHOCEL™ ethylcellulose polymers are being used as high quality rheology modifier, film former and binder in inks for gravure, flexographic and screen printing. Additionally, ETHOCEL™ ethylcellulose polymers act as wetting agents during the pigment grinding process.
The increase in performance and durability of waterborne coatings on the market today come as a result of solving key challenges in their formulation such as viscosity incompatibility both within the formulation as well as with a substrate which negatively affect stability, adhesion, and durability.
In aqueous inks for inkjet printing, POLYOX™ water-soluble polymers are applied as rheological modifiers, dispersant, stabilizer and drag reducer at low addition rates.
