A phenol- and formaldehyde-free modified rosin resin, AltaPrint is formulated for use in heatset and sheetfed inks for the packaging and commercial printing markets.
This product line is available globally.
The AltaPrint family of products offers customers a more eco-friendly rosin resin alternative to petroleum-based phenolic modified resins without sacrificing performance characteristics such as gloss and film hardness. In addition, Altaprint’s increased bio-content means it contains more renewable raw materials than phenolic-based competitors.
“AltaPrint was developed to meet the industry’s evolving environmental trends and regulatory demands,” said Bill McDermott, global business manager, inks at Ingevity. “This new family of products provides customers with a ‘greener’ option that maintains the performance properties of widely used phenolic-based products.”
