Rohm and Haas to Showcase Technologies at Ink Conference

Rohm and Haas to Showcase Technologies at Ink Conference PHILADELPHIA, PA | Specialty materials producer Rohm and Haas will exhibit two new technologies at the National Assn. of Printing Inks Mfrs. annual technical conference, to be held Sept. 23-25, 2008, in Tucson, AZ.

Rohm and Haas’s exhibit will highlight two of the company’s igraphic arts pigment dispersing resins, Morcryl 410 and Morcryl 460 PLUS, which allow printers to control performance under a variety of press conditions. The resins are both used to manufacture waterbased inks used on packaging materials from corrugated boxes to flexibl e films. They yield higher strength dispersions with better viscosity control and improved resolubility and compatibility, which improves press runability, efficiency, and cost management, according to the company.

The inks are said to offer superior color density with stability, 6-1 pigment to binder ratios, 40% pigment dispersions, a choice between conventional or neutral letdowns, and performance with fewer adjustments for different color requirements, all in one package, the company reports.

The theme for this year’s NAPIM conference is “Ink-Materials and Technologies for a Sustainable Future,” and will include speakers on significant environmental issues the graphic arts ink and packaging industry is facing.
