We are looking for new binders suitable for printing inks for man made fabrics.
Apart from conventional binders for such inks, e.g. cellulose acetobutyrate, it is the polyurethanes in particular which have gained in importance. There are many different unreactive grades with which one can also formulate blends.
Certain polyamides and polyacrylates can also be used. The ink formulation must, however, always be adapted to the texture of the fabric and any surface treatment or impregnation it has been given. Each case must therefore be considered separately.
