Product category: Printing inks
Norilux® DC is a formable, abrasion and chemically resistant Dual Cure screen printing lacquer. Norilux® DC can be used as protective lacquer or hard coat on PC, PMMA, ABS and PP films.
Norilux® DC is ideally suited for first surface coating/protection of products manufactured in IMD/FIM technology.
The glossy version of the dual cure lacquer can be printed on textured film surfaces to produce abrasion resistant and transparent display windows.
The matt version of Norilux® DC can be printed on uncured transparent hard coat films such as Makrofol® HF 312 to create matt and high gloss effects in one item.
Besides the high glossy Norilux® DC lacquer, various satin gloss, textured and matt grades as well as pigmented and UV stabilized versions are available.
Tactile surface structures e.g. brush effects and 3D patterns can be printed with the highly resistant lacquer.
The lacquer can be used for overprinting silicone-free UV, solvent and water-based screen printing inks as well.
Norilux® DC dries by evaporation of the solvents in jet dryers. Films decorated with Norilux® DC can be 3D formed after box oven drying e.g. by high pressure forming or thermo forming. Afterwards, the formed films must be UV cured. The cured lacquer layer shows excellent resistances to abrasion, chemicals and cleaning agents and passes various creme tests of the automobile industry.
In automotive interior, center stacks, touch panels and decorative trims are first surface protected with Norilux® DC. Even mobile phone covers and sanitary panels are overprinted with the highly resistant lacquer. Second surface decoration is printed with the IMD/FIM ink system NORIPHAN® HTR N.
NORIPHAN® XMR screen printing ink for IMD/FIM technology
NORIPHAN® XMR is a halogen-free two-component ink system for IMD/FIM technology. NORIPHAN® XMR is formable, shows extremely high wash-out resistance, outstanding cohesion in compound and long-term durability in the final part.
The mild screen printing ink can be used as decorating ink or wash-out protective layer on PC films and PET films.
NORIPHAN® XMR shows high electrical resistance in capacitive fields. The black color shades can be used for back printing of conductive pastes in functional IMD/FIM parts due to its non-conductivity.
The highly resistant screen printing ink can be used for conventional printing applications as well. NORIPHAN® XMR shows excellent adhesion on PC films, PC blend films, pre-treated PET films and corona treated PE and PP films. Even on various scratch resistant surfaces or hard coat lacquers and TPU materials a good ink adhesion can be achieved.
NORIPHAN® HTR N 990 NC - non-conductive black for IMD/FIM technology
NORIPHAN® HTR N is a proven, formable, backmoldable and solvent-based one-component screen printing ink for film insert molding technology.
Due to the development of the new opaque black color shade NORIPHAN® HTR N 990 NC, a carbon-free, non-conductive black is available for printed electronic applications now.
The color shade can be used for decorative prints but is mainly used for plane multi-layer printing or backing of metallic and polymer conductive pastes. Carbon-based pigments, so called carbon blacks, normally used for black color shades, are electrically conductive and can interfere with the functional structures. The NORIPHAN® HTR N 990 NC color shade has been formulated and optimized regarding the interlayer adhesion and shows good adhesion in compound values in the final film/ink/injection material composition.
Proells core business lies in the development and production of customized chemical products for coating and printing plastics, glass, metals etc.
Our innovative solvent and water-based as well as UV-curing screen printing inks and pad printing inks are used for industrial and graphic applications.
In the film insert molding sector (IMD/FIM-Technology), a wide range of ink systems and adhesion promoters is available for the decoration of automotive interior panels or IT and household appliances. With the launch of the chemically resistant and formable Norilux® DC dual-cure screen printing lacquer, a protective coating, approved by the OEM, is available for interior applications.
Industrially customized printing applications are our core competence!
