Lactamic polymers, such as polyvinyl pyrrolidone (PVP), are well known to exhibit a high degree of functional utility, particularly in inks and graphic art coatings. One challenge with lactamic polymers is water solubility and water sensitivity. As printing technology evolves, there is a need for new functional materials that incorporate facile methods for achieving water resistance improvements. David K. Hood from Ashland Specialty Ingredients, USA, will present an insight to a novel, cross-linkable, film-forming, lactamic polymer at the European Coatings Symposium "Novel developments for printing inks” on 15 May 2012. A novel curable polymeric material based upon n-vinyl pyrrolidone will be discussed in detail along with general polymer structure, properties and functionality. Additionally, a short review of recent innovations, by functional class, will be discussed. Application of these various materials in inkjet related technologies will be described.
