Ask the Experts Inks and Graphic Arts

I am formulating a water-based flexographic ink for film applications can you recommend a good dynamic wetting agent that can also help with foam control?

Based on Gemini technology, Surfynol® AD01 surfactant gives you the power to solve multiple problems without the cost of using multiple additives. Surfynol AD01 surfactant offers high performance in graphic arts applications including printing inks and overprint varnishes by generating less foam in formulation and application and by improving the flow and leveling of the final print. Low-VOC, solvent-free, low-odor, HAP’s-free and APE-free are just a few of the benefits you can attribute to Surfynol AD01 surfactant. To effectively reduce dynamic surface tension and provide a wide compounding latitude for formulators looking for a high performance surfactant that can both defoam and act as a wetting agent, Surfynol AD01 surfactant is your solution.
