Features & Benefits

Applications & Uses

  • Applications for Texicryl® 13-809 include water based overprint varnishes, as well as flexographic and gravure inks. Texicryl® 13-809 offers a good combination of high gloss with fast dry, enabling maximized press run speeds. The polymer may be compounded to give a crystal clear dry film improving the depth and intensity of the ink color underneath.
  • Texicryl® 13-809 is also compatible with a wide range of fast drying alcohols, and other coalescing solvents. Dowanol DPM is particularly effective as a coalescing solvent. Texicryl® 13-809 has inherent heat resistance properties, however, heat resistance can be further enhanced if necessary by the addition of Zinc Ammonium Carbonate or Zinc Oxide solution which will crosslink with the carboxyl functionality contained in Texicryl® 13-809 after evaporation of the ammonia.
  • With it’s low odor, Texicryl® 13-809 is particularly suitable for inks and varnishes used in food packaging where taste and taint must be eliminated.
Note on Film Formation

Texicryl® 13-809 is a hard resin emulsion which requires the addition of a solvent, plasticiser, or soft polymer to enable film formation at standard application temperatures. If using coalescing solvents, care must be taken when adding the cosolvent; it must be added as the last ingredient, added slowly whilst stirring to avoid solvent shocking. As a nominal guide, 15% of Dowanol DPM added to Texicryl® 13-809 will enable film formation at room temperature. DPM is a very effective cutting solvent, and other solvents will require higher addition levels to enable film formation at ambient temperature.
