Improve pigment wetting, lower viscosity and modify rheology with STEPANPOL PC-270-01
Acrylate and formulate STEPANPOL® PC-270-01 into energy-cure inks to achieve excellent pigment wetting, lower viscosity and modify rheology.
You can also formulate STEPANPOL® PC-270-01 into 2-K adhesives to improve adhesion because it imparts superior wetting on many different substrates.
STEPANPOL® PC-270-01 is a modified polyester polyol that can be acrylated and used in the grind and let-down phases of energy-cure inks. Stepan have carried out extensive testing and comparisons with commercially available acrylates. Acrylates made with STEPANPOL® PC-270-01 show:
- Better overall performance in dispersions with lower functionality and viscosity
- >35% pigment loading in UV dispersions without sacrificing yield stress and plastic viscosity
- Excellent wet out which could reduce the dispersion agent use by 25%
