Wide range of Picassian® polyurethanes for flexible packaging
Webbing is a common phenomenon in inks during printing of flexible packaging, which results in inefficiencies in printing lines. In response to this, we developed Picassian® PU-551, an elastomeric polyurethane which can speed up the printing process. The key benefits of Picassian® PU-551 are:

  • Alows for for high-speed printability in laminating inks by preventing webbing
  • Film forming, semi aliphatic, hydroxy functional for effective pigment grinding
  • Easy formulation of laminating inks

Stahl has a range of Picassian® polyurethanes for flexible packaging. Our polymers enable complex, multilayer food packaging structures to withstand exposure to the conditions associated with cooking or freezing. As a result, delamination is prevented and the consumer experience is enhanced.
