Formula Reduction of Printing ink
  The main components of printing ink are pre-polymer, photosensitive monomer, photo-initiator, and auxiliary components are coloring pigment, filler, additives (flatting agent, polymerization inhibitor), etc. Pre-polymer is the important component deciding the performance of UV varnish coating, the basic component in UV printing ink and the film forming substances whose performance plays an important role in curing process and the property of ink film. It can be divided according to the skeletal structure which has impact on coating hardness, abrasion resistance, adhesion property, light resistance, chemical resistance, water resistance, etc.
  Photosensitive monomer (reactive diluents): UV printing ink and UV varnish require proper viscosity when coating. 20%-80% monomer is added to reduce the viscosity of pre-polymer. At the meantime, monomer starts polymerization reaction becoming part of the cured film.
Photo-initiator can absorb radiant energy, produce reactive intermediate with polymerization ability through chemical transformation, and is the main component required by any UV curing system. Photo-initiator can be divided into hydrogen abstraction type and degradation type.
Other additives are used to improve the performance of printing ink. The commonly used additives are stabilizer, flatting agent, anti-foaming agent, dispersing agent, wax, etc.

The function of testing and analysis of printing ink products
◆ Analyze the composition of new products, reduce the formula and be easy to imitate production;
◆ Analyze the root of the problem of product performance for improvement;
◆ Qualitatively and quantitatively adjust the specified composition in the product;
◆ Shorten the development cycle and guide the direction of research and development;
◆ Improve production efficiency and product competitiveness.

ICAS formula analysis technology of printing ink
  ICAS formula reduction analysis of printing ink is normally performed by using spectrometry (ultraviolet spectrometer, infrared spectrometer, nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometer), chromatography (gas chromatograph, liquid chromatograph, ion chromatograph), mass spectrometry (mass spectrometer, gas chromatograph-mass spectrometer, liquid chromatograph- mass spectrometer),energy dispersive spectrometry (fluorescence spectrometer, diffraction spectrometer), thermospectrometry (thermogravimetric analyzer, differential scanning calorimeter) to make comprehensive analysis of the sample. Through combined utilization of various separation and analytical methods, qualitative and quantitative analysis of each composition in the sample is conducted so as to determine the structure and obtain a full-scaled understanding.
  These testing methods can contribute to analyzing the formula and getting a clear understanding of the function of each composition in printing ink in favor of R&D and grasping the market tendency for clients. Ingeer Technical Service Department, having accumulated rich experience in chemical product analysis, is able to provide scientific basis for formula adjustment, new product R&D, improvement of production process in the scientific research and production through qualitative evaluation and quantitative analysis of unknown substance by means of professional, reliable and comprehensive separation and testing methods.
