What is Gravure Printing?

What is gravure printing? To understand rotogravure printing, a brief primer of intaglio is required. Intaglio is the process used in printing and printmaking in which an image is incised into a surface and where the incised line – or sunken area – holds the ink. There are many applications for intaglio, such as the [...]

What Are VOCs?

Volatile organic compounds – otherwise known as VOCs – are a variety of compounds that are emitted as gases from certain types of solids and liquids. The concentration of VOCs can be particularly high indoors (up to 10x higher than outdoors) and can be emitted from a vast amount of household products. Wax, paints, and [...]

Polymer Supplier and Adhesive Manufacturer

The world of polymers is wide and varied, with many moving parts. There are hundreds of applications for our water based acrylic polymers in a variety of fields. A polymer, simply put, is a macromolecule comprised of many smaller molecules called monomers. These molecules react among themselves chemically to form long chain or three-dimensional networks. [...]

Acrylic Polymers in the Healthcare Industry

Acrylic polymer, derived from the monomer methyl methacrylate (MMA), was first developed more than 60 years ago. Since then, formulations have extended the material's performance range, resulting in varying levels of melt flow, impact resistance, colorability, gamma recovery, and other controlled characteristics. General-purpose acrylic grades contain a comonomer, added during the polymerization process, to facilitate [...]
