JONCRYL® LMV low-maintenance, acrylic water-based polymer emulsions
JONCRYL LMV low-maintenance, water-based acrylic polymers for printing inks reduce print waste by providing clean printing and excellent pH stability without sacrificing resistance properties.
Industry studies show that total press downtime in a flexible packaging operation can be as high as 50%. Of that downtime, 20% is “ink related.” JONCRYL LMV resin solutions and emulsions allow ink makers to offer printers and converters an alternative to current water-based technology and reduce waste and downtime due to anilox plugging and ink build-up on plates. JONCRYL LMV pH-stable polymers, when used to make low VOC inks for paper, film, and foil inks, provide a balance of clean printing, resolubility, and excellent pH stability without sacrificing resistance properties.
Inks based on Joncryl LMV 7000 series polymers have excellent resolubility on press. This benefit has a direct correlation to the amount of waste that a press generates when the ink dries in the cylinder after a process upset or other shutdown.
Joncryl LMV 7000 series polymers maintain pH over long press runs —even on light coverage print jobs.
Key features and benefits
- Significant cost savings in ink additives and spoiled ink
- Improved pressroom efficiency
- Less print waste
1JONCRYL LMV 7014An acrylic colloidal emulsion that provides excellent resolubility and good ink transfer for cost-effective corrugated ink formulations. It can be used as a sole vehicle for carbon black ink or as a letdown vehicle for organic pigment color dispersions.
2JONCRYL LMV 7025A resin solution used to modify the drying speed and increase the resolubility of ink. As little as 5% of Joncryl LMV 7025 added to an ink formulation based on Joncryl LMV 7031 will decrease the time it takes for a print to fully recover after a press shutdown.
3JONCRYL LMV 7031A film forming emulsion that provides flexibility, water resistance, and adhesion for film and foil ink applications. It can also be used to improve the rub resistance of paper ink formulations.
4JONCRYL LMV 7034A film forming emulsion that provides adhesion and water-resistant characteristics for utility bag and other surface-print film and foil ink applications.
5JONCRYL LMV 7040A hard emulsion that provides film formation plus block and rub resistance for paper and paperboard ink applications.
6JONCRYL LMV 7050A fast dry, non-film forming emulsion that provides drying speed in ink formulations for corrugated, paper, and paperboard applications.
7JONCRYL LMV 7085A resin solution that optimizes the dispersion of organic pigments in a neutral pH solution, providing excellent color development, low foaming, and good storage stability.
