Both products expand BASF’s portfolio with two waterbased styrene acrylic emulsions. "Joncryl 8053” ensures that less soft emulsion is needed in the final ink or OPV formulation to achieve the required properties. It also enables the printing companies to add extra water in their ink or OPV formula without losing application properties. The product provides high viscosity in the end formulation and can be diluted down to average viscosity without losing application properties. Moreover it features good gloss and transparency in ink and OPV formulations.

With improved mileage cost savings can be achieved

"Joncryl 633-E” is an opaque acrylic emulsion. According to the producer it can replace up to 75% titanium dioxide in white inks for corrugated board and natural kraft substrates. In colored inks for paper, board and corrugated board, the product offers good hiding of the brown substrate which results in bright colors. The inks produced with the emulsion are fast-drying and show good resolubility. Moreover they provide good water and rub resistance.
