STAFFORD, Texas -- Vertec™ IA-10 ink adhesion promoter is now available exclusively from Dorf Ketal, the world's largest manufacturer of organic titanate and zirconate catalysts and cross linkers.

Vertec IA-10 is the leading brand of organic titanate catalysts for inks used in packaging made with nitrocellulose, polyamide and polyolefin films for food and consumer products.

According to John McChesney, General Manager of Dorf Ketal Specialty Catalysts, Vertec IA-10 also is recommended on NC-coated cellophane, OPP film, shellac-washed aluminium, pearlized polypropylene and polyethylene-coated milk cartons. "Many ink producers prefer acetyl acetone-free Vertec IA-10 or Tyzor™ IAM," says McChesney, "because they enhance ink adhesion and resistance to solvents and greases while improving heat stability, without affecting ink color or gloss."

"We acquired the Vertec trade name and intellectual property because we believe that we know titanate chemistry better than anyone else in the industry, and because we have the manufacturing capacity to meet growing demand world-wide," said McChesney.

Dorf Ketal acquired DuPont's Tyzor organic titanates in 2009, and the firm recently announced the acquisition of the Johnson Matthey intellectual property pertaining to PET catalysts, ink adhesion promoters, urethane catalysis and cross linking. Dorf Ketal announced the start-up of their new organometallic catalyst plant in Mundra, India, in April of this year.
