Optimal adhesion of paints and printing inks is a daily challenge; there is as wide a variety of substrates out there as there are paint formulations.
Product properties are not the only consideration when it comes to coating formulations for food packaging; choosing the right raw materials and their ingredients in light of food regulatory requirements is also critical.
Our co-binders TEGO® AddBond and TEGO® VariPlus are always free of bisphenol A diglycidyl ether (BADGE) and, in most cases, of formaldehyde.
TEGO® AddBond and TEGO® VariPlus improve the adhesion of paints and printing inks on metals and plastics. When used as co-binders, additional properties, such as the hardness flexibility balance and drying speed, can be matched to the customer's individual needs.
TEGO® AddBond and TEGO® VariPlus products meet the highest standard for product quality and are available for solventborne, waterborne, and radiation-curing coatings and printing inks.
