ALTUS COATING: THE GREEN GIANT
In partnership with the suppliers of raw materials, Altus Coating has developed a varnish at high dry extraction. On the basis of formulations comprising of reactive diluents, which no longer emit VOCs (the latter are not evaporated but incorporated into the film to give it all its characteristics), these laboratory products have been developed, from 75% to 100% dry extraction, depending upon the application.
Altus Coating wants to go even further with 100% dry extract rates. Currently dedicated to specific applications and processes, these “green” solutions will require significant investments. For the time being, these UV varnishes with 100% dry extractions are dedicated to flexographic applications.
