Headcel can be used as thickener and suspending agents in inks, such as magnetic ink, gravure and flexographic printing inks. As a unique product with wide-ranging solubility and flexibility at low temperatures, Headcel is frequently used in electronics in addition to a variety of other applications. It provides high solution clarity, good thermal stability, even burnout and has very low decomposition temperatures.
Headcel is a key binder for gravure printing inks as well as a thickening binder in flexographic and screen printing inks. In these applications, Headcel polymers provide scuff resistance, adhesion, fast solvent release, film formation and outstanding rheology control.
