TEGO® Glide 485 - Strong Slip Now for Printing Inks That May Come into Contact with Food

Published on 2009-04-08. Author : SpecialChem

Silicone-based slip and anti-blocking additives are the first choice when it comes to a high slip and anti-blocking effect in waterborne printing inks and coatings.

Thanks to TEGO® Glide 485, these additives can now also be used in formulations where direct food contact is possible. This slip additive is an emulsion and therefor easy to incorporate, odorless, highly effective, and complies with the strict FDA Regulation 21 CFR 175.300 and BfR Recommendation XIV.

Even at low doses, the slip resistance and blocking effect are considerably decreased while TEGO® Glide 485 significantly increases the scratch resistance.

The gloss level is retained and the formulations foam less. The combination of TEGO® Glide 485 with waxes generates further synergies.
