Abstract

Described herein are ink compositions that will not contaminate recycled plastic materials that come in contact with the inks; labels printed with such inks; and plastic articles having labels printed with such inks; and methods for printing with such inks, and recycled plastic material, such as recycled PET, that has little to no contamination from such inks. For example, during recycling, plastic containers that have been labelled with such inks are subjected to hot caustic wash solutions that cause the ink to separate the labels, When the inks described herein are removed from the label, they form a solid or precipitate, as opposed to dissolving in the hot caustic wash solution. The solid or precipitate is easily separated from the recycled plastic and wash solution, such as by filtration. The separated ink does not contaminate or stain the recycled plastic, or does so to a degree that is tolerable.

Abstract

The present invention provides a two part ink or coating system, wherein Part A comprises one or more hydroxyl functional resins, one or more aminoplast crosslinkers, one or more polyester polyols, and one or more solvents; and Part B comprises an acid catalyst. Part A and Part B are combined just prior to application on a substrate. The ink or coating system of the invention is resistant to removal from polyolefin film substrates when subjected to a hot caustic wash. When applied as an overcoat (backing coat) over conventional inks printed on polyolefin film substrates, the ink or coating system of the invention also prevents removal of the conventional inks from the polyolefin substrate when subjected to a hot caustic wash. Advantageously, use of the ink and coating systems of the present invention reduces ink staining and contamination of recycled PET flakes.

Abstract

The present invention provides an improved method for curing multi-layer constructs of energy curable (EC) inks and coatings with actinic radiation. In the method, one or more layers of EC inks and/or coatings comprising materials that can crosslink or polymerize when exposed to actinic radiation, e.g., monomers, oligomers or polymers, are applied to a substrate, which EC inks and coatings contain little or no photoinitiators. This is followed by applying one or more layers of non-EC inks and/or coatings, which comprise one or more organic peroxides but no readily polymerizable components, over the top of the layers of energy curable inks and/or coatings; and exposing the layers to actinic radiation.

Abstract

Solid pigment dispersions are described which are formulated to a paste consistency during grinding to reduce the pigment particle size and form a dry granular consistency at ambient temperature that is pourable and easy to handle. This allows for stronger, more intense colors and allows for easy integration into a variety cosmetic products. These pigment dispersions are prepared with plant-derived substances, derived from naturally occurring, renewable sources.

Abstract

An oxidized zinc pigment has been developed that can be used in a waterborne coating. The zinc metal allows for improved stability in waterborne systems while retaining the level of activity required for an anticorrosive material. This pigment is oxidized enough to prevent corrosion and still be dispersed in the waterborne coating, while still allowing for cathodic and anodic corrosion protection in the coating once applied to a metal surface. This zinc pigment may also be used in a waterborne ink or coating system and also for coated metal articles.

Abstract

The present invention provides an improved method for curing multi-layer constructs of energy curable (EC) inks and coatings with actinic radiation. In the method, one or more layers of EC inks and/or coatings comprising materials that can crosslink or polymerize when exposured to actinic radiation, e.g., monomers, oligomers or polymers, are applied to a substrate, which EC inks and coatings contain little or no photoinitiators. This is followed by applying one or more layers of non-EC inks and/or coatings, which comprise one or more organic peroxides but no readily polymerizable components, over the top of the layers of energy curable inks and/or coatings; and exposing the layers to actinic radiation.

Abstract

Solvent-based pigmented ceramic inkjet ink compositions including a solvent blend consisting predominantly of one or more hydrophobic solvent(s) (preferably one or more hydrophobic long chain hydrocarbon solvent(s)) are capable of achieving superior print quality when applied over unfired glazes by the inclusion of less than 10% by weight of the composition of a water-soluble solvent, especially glycol ethers. These ink compositions are particularly suited to ceramic tile decoration via the double fast firing process, with resulting improvements in absorption, color strength and print definition.

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. These materials exhibit improved film adhesion and are suitable for flexographic and gravure printing inks, especially for printing applications where adhesive lamination bond strengths are required, especially plastic films packaging applications.

When applied as an overcoat (backing coat) over conventional inks printed on polyolefin film substrates, the ink or coating system of the invention also prevents removal of the conventional inks from the polyolefin substrate when subjected to a hot caustic wash. Advantageously, use of the ink and coating systems of the present invention reduces ink staining and contamination of recycled PET flakes.

Abstract

The invention relates to photoactive oligomeric aminoketones for compositions and inks curable with ultraviolet (UV) light. The oligomeric ketones are particularly useful for printing or coating materials wherein a low migration of photoinitiators, and reduced transfer of ink from the printed to another surface are desired, such as, for example, food packaging.

Abstract

The present invention provides energy curable compositions that are curable using UV LED radiation. The compositions comprise vinyl methyl oxazolidinone (VMOX), as well as other components generally found in energy curable inks, such as ethylenically unsaturated monomers (in addition to VMOX), acrylated oligomers, and photoinitiators. The compositions are suitable for high speed flexographic or gravure printing.

Abstract

The present provides a fully digital workflow for the designing and production of packaging. A designer creates a package design with a special effect ink digitally, using a computer connected to a color database and a special effect ink database. Advantageously, the present workflow minimizes the complexity of the workflow by using transparent color layers printed over plain special effect additive ink layers to develop the special effect inks to be used on press.

Abstract

UV curable compositions comprising vinyl ether and acrylate compounds and a cationic photo initiator system. The compositions of the invention are particularly useful for the preparation of highly reactive and very low viscosity systems that may be applied via any printing or coating method, although inkjet printing is the preferred method. The inventive compositions can be cured with doses of 100 mJ/cm2 or less and deliver highly resistant surfaces.
