BASF Two-Pack Ink System is Alkali-Resistant


WYANDOTTE, MI | BASF has introduced Joncryl FLX 5100 emulsion and Joncryl FLX CL 1 crosslinker, a high alkali-resistant, two-pack, water-based ink system for packaging applications.

Printing ink formulas based on the emulsion and the crosslinker are said to enable ink manufacturers the opportunity to provide converters a two-pack ink system suitable for beverage labels, outdoor bags, and other high alkali-resistant applications.

Richard Grandke, industry manager—Printing & Packaging, Dispersions and Pigments for BASF in North America, says, “Our new Joncryl FLX two-pack ink technology now allows converters the option to print with water-based inks that have a longer pot life and lower toxicity ratings than many two-pack water-based systems currently used for these high resistant applications.”
