Our manufacturing facilities apply the concepts of process control and continuous improvement to consistently produce polymer emulsions of the highest quality. As binders in pigmented coatings, they provide an excellent balance of pigment binding strength plus water resistance and ink receptivity, making them ideal binders for offset, rotogravure and flexographic printing applications. Airflex and Vinac polymer emulsions are also used as surface sizes providing exceptional barriers to water, moisture vapor, grease and oil. And in saturant formulations, Airflex and Vinac polymer emulsions are used to modify such paper physical properties as tensile strength, stiffness and fold endurance.
