Influence of formulation and properties of water-based flexographic inks on printing performance for PE-coated board
In this study the flexographic printing of low-density polyethylene- (LDPE-) coated liquid packaging board is analysed for a range of water-based inks, varying in type of pigment and acrylate-polymer vehicle and pigment/vehicle mixing proportions. One vehicle is solely based on emulsion polymer, another contains solution polymer, and the third is a 50/50 blend of these two. Vehicle type and relative amount are shown to have a strong and systematic bearing on the absolute amount of ink...[Show more]
