Inks Applications

Alcohol Soluble Polyamides
Co-Solvent Polyamides
Resins for Laminating Inks
Alcohol Soluble Polyamides

These polyamides are designed to be soluble in ethanol or a blend of alcohols and have very good ester tolerance. It is generally more compatible with nitrocellulose than the co-solvent or alcohol-reducible types and offers better low-temperature gel resistance and recovery. The improved compatibility with nitrocellulose allows the formulation of printing inks with high heat resistance for heat-seal applications.​

Trusted Supplier

Kraton has been manufacturing UNI-REZ™ polyamides for more than 40 years.​

Co-Solvent Polyamides

These polyamides are designed to be soluble in blends of alcohols or blends of alcohols and aliphatic hydrocarbon co-solvents. It can be formulated to give systems excellent adhesion, pigment wetting and gloss, fast solvent release, and resistance to water, chemicals, and deep freeze conditions.​


Global Availability

Our chemicals are designed for specific product performance needs and are available worldwide.

Resins for Laminating Inks

These resins are designed to be soluble in a blend of alcohols. They provide prints with a fast solvent release for low retained solvent and good adhesion to various substrates used for flexible packaging.​
