Nitrocellulose Based Lamination Ink

Nitrocellulose based lamination ink is an ink designed to produce a high quality and intense colour print result. This is a specialty ink that was developed for top quality gravure printing which is most popular for packaging materials. In addition to impressive printability, this type of ink offers high laminate bond strength. This ink allows for lamination and can be applied to a wide variety of substrates.

Nitrocellulose based lamination ink can be used in both screen and fine type applications due to its excellent resolubility. It is ideal for use in printing systems where there is a high press speed expected and used. It has virtually no odour and has a very low solvent retention. The make-up of the ink itself has phenomenal heat seal bonds. Flexographic and gravure ink processes can be quite successfully carried out with this ink type even without additives and a cross-linker.

Most lamination inks are designed to print on polyethylene, polyester and polypropylene. It is not recommended to use this type of ink with other types of inks due to compatibility issues. There is not a wide variety of colours available in this particular type of ink, but most of the base colours are available in nitrocellulose inks. Of course the quality of print when using this ink will depend on the printer, as well as on the ink used. This is why it is vitally important to make use of a professional printer in the industry.
