Addressing the solvent borne coating and ink challenge
Our NeoRez® and Uralac® solventborne resins are designed to balance performance against environmental concerns. In line with DSM’s sustainability drive, we only provide solventborne products where they are necessary to meet specific demands.
For instance in can coatings that allow consumers to enjoy an ice-cold soda straight from the fridge. Or printing inks used for multilayer packages so you can prepare your meal in the microwave safely. Here, solvent borne coatings are considered the best viable solution, whilst solvents are incinerated and the resulting energy is regenerated for the curing ovens.
