Applications & Uses

Coating End Applications
Product Applications
  • Texicryl® 13-818 readily forms strong, coherent films at normal room temperature but inks and varnishes will ‘key’ more quickly to non absorbent substrates if gentle heat is applied through force drying.
  • When the use of alcohols is required to control rate of dry, it is advisable to pre-dilute the alcohol with some water and add slowly to the polymer to avoid ‘solvent shock’.
  • Due to the adhesive nature of the vehicle, it is advisable to clean presses as soon as possible after shutdown. Dried films of Texicryl® 13-818 can be removed using commercial cleaners containing a small amount of propylene glycol ether solvent
