Legislation aimed at reducing emission of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) has had a significant impact on many industries. For years, Eastman Cellulose Esters have found widespread use in coatings and inks applications to address a number of issues. However; for some grades, the high molecular weight of the product has led to increased viscosity, resulting in VOC content in excess of legislated maximum value.
In a recent evaluation of cellulose ester products in digital inkjet printing, Solus Performance Additive exhibited excellent viscosity and temperature stability. It was found that it was possible to jet material at 33% solids in MEK and 16% solids in a slower evaporating solvent. The ability to jet the ink at high polymer content allows the user significant formulation flexibility.
