Borica manufactures a range of adhesion promoters (AP) based on titanium and zirconium chelates. These are predominantly used for cross-linking resins to low surface energy polymeric substrates. Some grades are suitable for bonding to other substrates such as glass and metal as well.

These types of adhesion promoter are very popular in packaging ink formulations as they has favourable food contact approvals, low odour and a high level of transparency. They also improve gloss and aid pigment dispersion. Some grades also act as cross-linking agents to modify the rheology of certain oilfield fluids e.g. guar-thickened fracturing fluids.

Features


    • High transparency and optical clarity

    • Improves gloss

    • Wide range of food contact approvals

    • Swiss Ordinance 6A and more

    • Cross-links a number of different resin and substrate functional groups

    • Strongly increases adhesion of solvent based inks to various polymer substrates (amongst others like glass and metal too)

    • Used in flexographic and gravure inks

    • Low odour

    • High temperature stability

Benefits


    • Excellent for transparent and high gloss packaging inks

    • Improves adhesion on low surface energy substrates, such as flexible packaging films

    • Aids pigment dispersion

    • Can be used to maintain high viscosity of fracturing fluids thickened with guar derivatives at high temperatures (deep well conditions).

Typical Applications


    • Adhesion promotion of solvent based inks to difficult substrates

    • High gloss flexographic and gravure inks

    • Cross-linking guar additives in oilfield and fracturing fluids
