  • Publication number: 20200339838
    Abstract: Described herein is an actinically curable adhesive composition, suitable for sealing flexible packaging, that includes an inert urethane polymer and an ethylenically unsaturated monomer component selected from at least one monofunctional ethylenically unsaturated monomer, at least one multifunctional ethylenically unsaturated monomer, and a combination thereof, wherein the ethylenically unsaturated monomer component disperses the inert urethane polymer. The compositions are suitable for forming flexible packaging materials for foods and other materials, particularly sensitive materials. Also described are flexible packaging materials and a method for preparing an actinically curable adhesive composition.

  • Publication number: 20200291159
    Abstract: Described herein are compositions suitable for use as binder components for inclusion in printing inks and coatings, such as those used in the gravure and flexographic printing process and which are printed on substrates such as polyolefin (e.g., polyethylene, polypropylene) and poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PET). The compositions are non-aqueous dispersions in which an one or more ethylenically unsaturated acrylates or (meth)acrylates is polymerized with a polyurethane, polyurethane-urea or polyurea in a non-aqueous polymerization medium, such as esters, ketones, and mixtures thereof, forming polymeric hybrid resins in the polymerization medium, which are solvent-dispersible hybrid resins of polyurethane-polyacrylate, polyurethane-urea-polyacrylate, and polyurea-polyacrylate. Films of hybrid resins are also disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20200216689
    Abstract: Described herein are water-based inks that comprise water, a water miscible solvent having a boiling point of about 56° C. to about 98° C., and a latex. In one aspect, the water miscible solvent comprises about 10 wt % to about 30 wt % of the ink (based on the total weight of the ink). In another aspect, the latex is an alcohol-tolerant latex that exhibits limited or no particle size increase in the presence of alcohol. Further described herein are articles printed with the inks, and methods of printing with the inks.

  • Patent number: 10689532
    Abstract: The present invention provides radiation curable hybrid ink and coating compositions comprising large amounts of inert hard resin. The radiation hybrid ink and coating compositions have good lithographic properties, low roller swelling, and a low gloss-back effect when overprinted with a UV varnish. The ink and coating compositions are useful for lithographic wet and waterless printing.

  • Publication number: 20190322813
    Abstract: Described herein are alkoxylated polymers suitable for use in primers, inks or coating compositions. The alkoxylated polymers derive from a polyalkylene glycol polymer or copolymer backbone having one or more alkoxylated sites in a non-reactive form and at least one reactive terminal end, and one or more polyfunctional monomers or oligomers having two or more functional polar groups with an active hydrogen, or mixtures thereof, wherein the alkoxylated polymer is polymerized in a one step process. Primers, inks or coating compositions are further described.

  • Patent number: 10266709
    Abstract: The present invention is directed to energy curable offset conductive inks and hybrid offset conductive ink compositions that contain an oxidative curable ink and the energy curable offset conductive ink. The conductive inks and ink compositions exhibit low levels of resistance and hence have superior conductivity.

  • Patent number: 9365064
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus for flexographic color printing, and more particularly for implementing “wet trapping” in flexographic printing using energy curable flexographic liquid inks are presented. Radiation curable inks can be formulated that wet trap over each other without back-trapping onto the plates and anilox units of down-line printing units by controlling the storage modulus of the inklcoating. The storage modulus G? in the inks can be controlled to ensure that the highest G? ink is printed ISt down with successive colors being trapped in the order of their (declining) G? values. An image in wet ink can thus be trapped over a different image in wet ink of a different color without picking the ISt ink back up and redepositing it onto the subsequent plates and rollers in the printing press (back-trapping).
