Evonik Launches Slip Additive for Solvent-based Printing Applications

Published on 2016-12-09. Author : SpecialChem

Evonik has launched TEGO® Glide A 116, a highly effective slip additive for use in solvent-based printing applications. Demands made up on printing ink formulations are high, especially in the packaging market, as they must be high quality, reliable, and in compliance with regulations. Because it is easy to process and is highly compatible with other materials — particularly when used in overprint varnishes — TEGO® Glide A 116 yields outstanding print quality while meeting all legal requirements.

Features of TEGO® Glide A 116

Plastic Packaging
Plastic packaging

  • It shows outstanding compatibility in color printing systems 
  • Works especially well in combination with waxes and matting agents
  • Lends a perfect finish to the product
  • Eliminates sensitivity to scratching and keeps surfaces from sticking together

Compliance with Food Packaging Requirements

Food packaging is a particularly important component of the packaging market, and strict regulations help ensure safety in this sensitive area. TEGO® Glide A 116 is in compliance with regulatory demands and legal requirements; a complete listing is available for Switzerland’s Consumer Goods Ordinance (A).

When designed well, food packaging helps with product placement, provides the customer with information, and, most importantly, protects food,” says Anna-Maria Ickert, director of global marketing for inks & new applications. “TEGO® Glide A 116 yields ideal printing results in an exceptionally wide variety of applications, such as beverage containers, plastic packaging for ice-cream and chocolate, and in labels or films for printing on surfaces. TEGO® Glide A 116 is highly compatible with other materials, produces lasting results in overprint varnishes, and meets regulatory requirements. It’s a highly effective slip additive for all solvent-based end-use applications.”
