Published on 2011-10-26. Author : SpecialChem

WOODLAND PARK, NJ -- Cytec Industries Inc. announced the launch of EBECRYL® 571 a modified polyester resin for energy curable flexographic narrow web heat shrink sleeve printing ink and coating applications. EBECRYL 571 has good printability, high flexibility and excellent adhesion to PVC, PET-G and OPS. In addition, EBECRYL 571 shows excellent wrinkle resistance during transverse directional shrinkage and is suitable for process colors and compatible with metallic and white pigments.

"There is still a significant amount of opportunity for market growth and packaging design innovation in shrink sleeve labels, especially in emerging consumer packaging geographies such as Brazil and China," said Anthony Carignano, Global Marketing Manager for Packaging Coatings & Inks. "It's for this reason that we have designed EBECRYL 571 a robust, high performance oligomer system that can be used in both the dispersion and let-down phases during the ink manufacturing process. If ink formulators and converters operating in the narrow web sleeve label space are looking for new resin systems which can facilitate higher impact graphics and increased brand identity awareness, EBECRYL 571 is an ideal choice."
