Online Course Registration
The packaging market strongly calls for water-based inks now that they have improved. If you still face difficulties to match solvent-based performance (ex: film adhesion, drying speed, printability, foaming, resolubility), join this advanced formulation course and:
1. Raise your waterborne ink performance to solvent-based level by reviewing key success factors: substrate treatment, the role of each raw material, the tweaking logic
2. Easily meet in practice specific needs & end uses with guidance for wax or coalescing solvent substitution, pigment replacement.
3. Keep up with emerging materials which ease formulation of WB flexo, OPV varnish, and gravure inks for plastic substrates
