Inks for flexible packaging

Flexible packaging inks enhance the graphic appearance and contribute to the performance of the package by preserving the quality of the images during the manufacturing, packaging, transportation, and use of the product. Whether the inks are water-based or solvent-based, for surface print or lamination, BASF offers ink formulators a broad product portfolio of high quality resins and resin solutions for a wide range of flexible packaging inks:

  • JONCRYL FLX resins for high performance surface print and lamination water-based inks.
  • VERSAMID PUR polyurethane resin solutions offer excellent adhesion and lamination bond strength over a wide range of adhesives and film structures for food packaging applications.


Innovation is our power!

BASF is innovating in the flexible packaging market to meet the increasing market needs for high- and medium- duty lamination ink applications. For this reason in 2016, BASF will launch several new solvent-based products under the Versamid PUR brand to support the growing market needs while continuing to strengthen our water-based portfolio. In addition, BASF is continuing to enable conversion to more sustainable water-based inks for flexible packaging with new developments in the Joncryl FLX series.
