Eastek™ 1400 Polymer Dispersion
Eastek™ 1400 is an aqueous dispersion of a sulfopolyester polymer with a low Tg . It is used to form flexible films in coatings and inks for packaging.
Eastek™ 1400 is a water-based dispersion of a sulfopolyester resin with a Tg of 29°C. It forms clear and glossy films that exhibit superior adhesion to packaging materials including PET films, paper, metalized films, SBS boards, and aluminum surfaces. The adhesion properties in combination to rapid drying times make Eastek™ 1400 the ideal binder and film forming resin for inks and coatings used in flexible packaging applications. Films formed with Eastek™ 1400 are also highly flexible and have been used in textile coatings. These coatings work to improve ink receptivity of textiles. Because of it's low Tg Eastek™ 1400 is has a good amount of tack. This tack is useful when Eastek™ 1400 is used to formulate adhesives for tape and film lamination.
