New Products

Effective as of 1 July 2017:

All Thinners and Retarders for solvent-based ink series as well as Hardeners, Adhesion Promoters, Catalysts, Fixatives and Crosslinkers will be renamed and standardized.

Up to now our Thinners were named according to the ink systems. This is now changing and a uniform nomenclature will be introduced.

In future all Thinners and Retarders will only be called Thinners.

Norilux® DC - Abrasion Resistant Dual-Cure Screen Printing Lacquer

Norilux® DC is a formable, abrasion resistant Dual-Cure screen printing lacquer which is available in matt and high gloss versions. Norilux® DC can be used as protection lacquer or hard coat on PC and PMMA films. Norilux® DC is ideally suited for first surface coating of products manufactured in IMD/FIM technology. The Dual-Cure lacquer can be printed on textured film surfaces to produce abrasion resistant and transparent display windows.
The matt version of Norilux® DC can be printed on uncured transparent films like Makrofol® HF 278 hard coat film to create matt and high gloss effects in one item (see picture).
Processing of Dual-Cure lacquers require handling conditions without UV light.
The Dual-Cure screen printing lacquer can be used for overprinting silicone free UV, solvent and water-based screen printing inks (pre-tests required). Norilux® DC dries by evaporation of the solvents in jet dryers.
Before further processing of the printed films, it is necessary to remove nearly all solvent residues from the layer of lacquer and substrate. Well ventilated box ovens can be used.
Films decorated with Norilux® DC can be 3D formed after box oven drying e.g. by high pressure forming or thermo forming. Afterwards, the formed films must be UV cured. Depending on the thickness of the lacquer layer, UV doses of 1200-2000 mJ/cm2 are necessary (Kühnast UV-Integrator, UV 250 to 410 nm, max. 365 nm). The cured lacquer layer shows excellent resistances to abrasion, chemicals and cleaning agents.

Mirror Ink M3 – Improved Climate Resistance

Mirror Ink M3 is a new improved screen printing ink for printing chrome effects.
The ink system is used for second surface decoration of transparent plastics and films (PC, PMMA, rigid PVC, pre-treated PET films) and glass.
While drying, the metal pigments are aligned parallel to the substrate’s reverse side.
Viewed through the transparent material from the first surface, the pigments create a mirror like effect. To improve the resistance of the printed mirror, Mirror Ink M3 should be overprinted with a mild solvent-based ink system (NORIPHAN® N2K) or a water-based screen printing ink (Aqua-Jet® FGL M).
High gloss effects can be achieved, even if Mirror Ink M3 is printed on the first surface of a smooth substrate.
Mirror Ink M3 shows good printing properties and excellent climate stability. Large areas and fine details can be easily printed. Due to the pigment particle size, fabrics from 77 to 150 threads/cm (195 to 380 threads/inch) are recommended.
