Functionality of Polyethylene Wax Emulsion in Water-based Inks
What is the role of polyethylene wax emulsion in water-based inks? Water-based inks are mainly used in flexographic printing and gravure printing. The gloss of water-based inks affects the appearance of printed products, while polyethylene wax emulsions can improve the gloss of aqueous ink surfaces.
The water-based polyethylene wax emulsion is added as an ink additive, and the resin system can be omitted in the water-based system. It does not affect the formulation, while giving the ink high gloss, feel, matte and other properties.
How does polyethylene wax emulsion improve the gloss of water-based inks? How can it help with water-based inks?
1. It can improve the surface properties of waterborne coatings and inks after film formation.
2. It is used in paint to improve the waterproofness and anti-back-adhesion of the paint film, resist scratching and increase the slipperiness of the paint film.
3. It is highly resistant to abrasion and has a high matting effect.
Other functions of polyethylene wax emulsion in water-based ink application
It has abrasion resistance, slipperiness and scratch resistance. After the addition of the aqueous ink, the polyethylene wax emulsion forms a film in an aqueous system, and drifts to the surface of the coating film during the process. The formation of a wax protective layer on the coating film reduces the coefficient of friction and improves the wear resistance and slipperiness of the coating. It also changes the direction of stress of the coating and improves the scratch resistance of the coating.
