Print quality and resistance for water-based flexography on polymer-coated boards: Dependence on ink formulation and substrate pretreatment

Rentzhog, Maria; Fogden, Andrew


The performance of water-based acrylic flexographic inks laboratory printed on three different polymer-coated boards, namely coated with LDPE, OPP and PP, have been analysed and interpreted. The print quality and resistance properties obtained were related to varying ink formulation, in particular choice of emulsion polymer and presence of silicone additive in the vehicle, as well as varying levels of corona pretreatment. Print mottle and adhesion were worst on PP, while wet (water) rub and...[Show more]
