Flexo and Gravure inks can be found in many different parts of the printing world. We have covered what these two versatile and prolific water-based inks are and how they work in previous articles.
A Quick Overview Emulsion acrylic polymers are a versatile and vital part of paints, coatings, and inks, and other diverse applications in industries ranging from engineering to avionics to biomedical and drug delivery systems. The most common categories of polymers found in real-world applications, and the most common ones that Gellner works with, are cationic and anionic polymers. Gellner offers a wide range of products for all your acrylic polymer needs. However, we know that choosing the right polymer can be a difficult task with all the different products out there. While both categories of polymers have their advantages and […]

The world of polymers is wide and varied, with many moving parts. There are hundreds of applications for our water based acrylic polymers in a variety of fields. A polymer, simply put, is a macromolecule comprised of many smaller molecules called monomers. These molecules react among themselves chemically to form long chain or three-dimensional networks. Both natural and synthetic polymers play a very important role in our day-to-day lives. The most commonly available polymer found in nature is cellulose, which is formed from the monomer glucose. Over 75% of most plant bodies are composed of cellulose. As an adhesive supplier and […]
Acrylic polymer, derived from the monomer methyl methacrylate (MMA), was first developed more than 60 years ago. Since then, formulations have extended the material’s performance range, resulting in varying levels of melt flow, impact resistance, colorability, gamma recovery, and other controlled characteristics. General-purpose acrylic grades contain a comonomer, added during the polymerization process, to facilitate flow during injection molding and extrusion. Specialty grades are formulated to perform in applications requiring high impact strength and heat resistance. UV-light-transmitting formulations are also available, and are specified for certain critical diagnostic equipment in which even slight UV absorption or variation in material flow […]
Everywhere you look, you see vinyl. A bus whizzes by you on the street, you walk into a fast food restaurant or walk into a suite in a corporate office building, it is all around you.Wiring and CablesLook around the room and you are bound to see lots of cables. A lot of cables are coated in vinyl because they are able to withstand tough conditions such as moisture and temperature. PVC is an excellent insulator on electrical wires. Manufacturers love it because it is affordable and very heat resistant. It is also chemical and oil resistant, impact resistant, elastic, […]
