Advancion’s multifunctional amino alcohols, specialty additives and high-performance solvents help formulators and manufacturers meet the demanding performance requirements of a broad array of ink and overprint varnish formulations. When used as a solubilizer and neutralizer for water-based acrylic inks, our amino alcohols have been shown to provide enhanced pigment dispersion, color development, pH and viscosity control, as well as improved overall formulation stability across a broad temperature range.
For solvent-borne ink and overprint varnish formulations, our portfolio of specialty solvents with unique solubility parameters can improve color development and adhesion, and reduce quality issues associated with less-than-optimal solvents in rotogravure and flexographic formulations.
