Rovene 6103 is a soft, film forming vehicle that provides good water and rub resistance for flexographic and gravure inks and overprint varnishes. Rovene 6103 can be used as the film forming component in overprint varnish formulations or as the sole vehicle for inks and overprint varnishes providing excellent gloss. The emulsion can also be used as the nonskid component in formulations. Because of the low glass transition temperature, Rovene 6103 has good adhesion to treated flexible films. Inks and overprint varnishes formulated with Rovene 6103 can be formulated with graphic arts industry standard products and additives.
