Alcohol soluble polyamides
These polyamides are designed to be soluble in ethanol or a blend of alcohols and have very good ester tolerance.
It is generally more compatible with nitrocellulose than the co-solvent or alcohol reducible types and offer better low temperature gel resistance and recovery.
The improved compatibility with nitrocellulose allows the formulation of printing inks with high heat resistance for heat-seal applications.
It can be formulated to give systems:
Fast solvent release
Pigment wetting and gloss
Resistance to water, chemicals and deep freeze conditions
