Product Description
Eastman AWI 5010 polymer is a free-flowing powder with low odor, low color, and high hydroxyl content. It is fast dissolving in ethanol/water, has good water tolerance for reducing static electricity and fire risk, and is compatible with many ink resins (e.g. polyurethane, acrylic) and solvents (e.g. ester, ketone, ether). It has good organic and inorganic pigment dispersing to bring high tint strength for ink. It has high Tg to provide heat resistance and anti-blocking ability.
