Ideally suited to reduce migration levels
Product reliability & consistency
Monomers which are used in Graphic Arts applications are low molecular weight substances which possess a potentially higher tendency for migration. It is essential therefore to ensure that the quality of the selected monomers is consistent from batch to batch, with any reaction by-products being assessed and quantified.
In order to meet the above requirements, Sartomer has developed a range of superior quality monomers under "Y*" references.
The development of this range is based on three fundamental pillars:
- Thorough selection of raw materials
- Strict process control
- Analytical quality control process linked to tight specifications
*In all cases, it is essential that the end-user establishes the suitability of the selected monomers in each formulated ink/varnish systems intended for indirect food contact application.
