Title: SOLVENT-BASED FLEXIBLE PACKAGING INKS
Abstract:
A solvent-based flexographic ink composition comprises a binder resin or polymer, a dispersed pigment, organic solvent, and an additive that is at least one of lecithin, phosphatidylcholine, a fatty acid with 8-22 carbon atoms, a soap of a fatty acid with 8-22 carbon atoms, or fatty acid (8-22 carbons) ester of a phosphorylated amino alcohol provides high definition graphic prints, better color density, and improved press efficiency in high-speed flexographic printing of flexible substrates such as plastic films and foils used in packaging.
