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 novel anionic modified rosin ester resins having a high BRC content, up to 100% BRC. The resins of the present invention are useful as emulsion, dispersion, or solution resins. High BRC content pigment grind vehicles, coatings, and finished inks can be prepared using the resins of the present invention. Advantageously, the finished inks of the present invention have equal to or superior properties compared to current commercially available inks sold as sustainable products, but having little to no BRC content. The present invention represents a significant step towards developing sustainable inks and coatings that are better for the environment.

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

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 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.

The present invention is drawn to UV-curable ink and coating compositions comprising cleavage type photoinitiators and acids. The acids may be inorganic or organic acids, or acids generated by a photoacid generator during UV-cure. Incorporation of the acids into the UV-curable ink and coating compositions results in a reduction of migratable photodecomposition products that are produced by cleavage type photoinitiators during UV-cure.

Abstract

High chroma glitter pigments combine large particle interference pigments and absorption colorants to bring about a unique look. Unlike traditional glitter pigments, the high chroma glitter pigment does not exploit metallic coatings to achieve the sparkle effect. These high chroma glitter pigments produce optical effects and coloration without the need for incorporating additional pigments which, in turn, is a benefit from both a formulation and cost standpoint. In addition to a sparkle effect, the present invention provides high chroma over both dark and light backgrounds, which has been thus far unrealized in prior art. Materials used in the present invention are ethically sourced, environmentally friendly, free of plastic, free of heavy metals, and regulated for cosmetic applications.

Abstract

A method for printing on a substrate comprises two steps. The first step consists essentially of: applying onto a substrate one or more layers of an energy curable ink and applying one or more layers of a water-based coating over the top of the one or more layers of energy curable ink. The second step comprises the steps of, in any order: a) drying the one or more layers of water-based coating, and b) actinically or electron beam curing simultaneously all the energy curable ink layers.

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.

It is an object of the present technology to overcome the disadvantages of conventional chlorination of a copper phthalocyanine which produces copper phthalocyanine, wherein the number of chlorines is less than than or equal to 4. The pigments described herein contain less chlorine than standard commercial grades of tetrachlorinated (or greater) copper phthalocyanine pigments while achieving similar color space, chromaticity, fastness properties, and color travel in automotive waterborne and solvent borne systems. The inventive pigments are more advantageous from a toxicity and environmental perspective, and allow the manufacturer to produce pigments in a safe and economical manner.

The inks and overprint varnishes are rub, scratch, chemical, humidity/water, and heat resistant, as well as being resistant to repeated bending and folding.

Abstract

The present invention relates to UV-LED light curable coating compositions comprising a compound having at least one alpha, beta-ethylenically unsaturated polymerizable double bond, a type II photoinitiator system based on a thioxanthone and an amine, and a colorant. Optional inclusions are a type I photoinitiator and an optical brightener. The UV-LED curable composition provides good surface cure and low yellowing.

Abstract

The present invention provides a method for applying multiple ink and/or coating layers on a substrate. At least one of the ink and/or coating layers contains one or more photoinitiators, and at least one of the ink and/or coating layers does not contain any photoinitiators. In certain embodiments, all of the ink and/or coating layers are wet trapped and the entire print construct is cured by exposure to UV radiation after all of the ink and/or coating layers have been applied. In certain embodiments, the wet trapping method of the present invention can be used to prepare laminates.

Abstract

The present invention is directed to a method for printing energy curable ink and coating compositions comprising high amounts of monofunctional monomers that exhibit both good adhesion to plastic substrates, and good solvent resistance. The method of the present invention employs electron beam curing of the ink and coating compositions, at accelerating voltages greater than or equal to 70 keV, and electron beam doses greater than or equal to 30 kGy, and preferably greater than or equal to 40 kGy.
