Water Based Binders:

 

Polymer Innovations manufactures some of the highest performing Tape Casting Binders on the market, which are water based making them safer, easier to work with and environmentally friendly.

 

• World's Highest Performance Water Based Tape Casting Binder: WB4101

• Unique - Like no other Tape Casting Binder

• Not like Emulsion or Water Soluble type binders

• Better Lamination Strength and Higher Green Density than other binders

• No VOCs and Non-Flammable

• Excellent Thin & Thick Film Casting (2 microns to > 1mm)

• Proven to Outperform Solvent Based binders with most powders

• Chemically a very strong dispersant and binder – our acrylic polymer is a perfect combination of strong dispersing molecule and strong binding molecule

• Professional Product Support & Technical Assistance

• Should not be used with traditional dispersants- PII has developed a set of specialized additives that have been custom-tailored for compatibility with the Water Based Binder System
• Some or all of the WB4101 should be present during the milling phases
• WB4101 should not be just mixed in stage2 some milling is required (WB4101 is strong dispersant so competition for ceramic surface can result in non-optimum dispersion)

Additives:

 

Polymer Innovations has developed a complete set of specialized additives that are custom-tailored for compatibility with our Water Based Binder System. Using these additives with our Water Based Binders allows you to engineer a slurry formulation to accommodate most ceramics, thicknesses, tape casters, casting surfaces and other conditions and variables.

 

Tape Casting Binder Additives

 

PII also offers additional Additives for other situations, so please contact us if you don't see the right Additive listed for your application.

Printing & Termination Vehicles:

 

Polymer Innovations manufactures two standard lines of Vehicles: one for printing on tapes or fired substrates and the other for producing Termination pastes. Thinners and Modifiers for these Vehicles are also available. Additionally, PII also makes custom Vehicles based on Customer needs, please e-mail us for more information regarding custom products.

Epoxy Vehicles:

 

EV110H & EV110L and EV120H & EV120L are completely formulated, one part epoxies useful for the formulation of screen printing pastes. The vehicles are blend compatible within their own product group for example EV110H and EV110L are designed to be blendable while EV120H and EV120L are compatible to blend with one another. However, blends between EV120 and EV110 products may yield unknown results as they use different curing chemistries. Thinners and Modifiers for these Vehicles are also available. Within each system there are 'H' and 'L' versions, which refer to the molecular weight of the epoxy used (and also the viscosity). 'L' versions have a solids content of 97% and use low molecular weight epoxy which will result in lower paste viscosities for a given epoxy solids content and a harder, higher crosslinked cured product. Hence, 'L' will provide the highest solvent resistance and hardest film. 'H' versions contain higher molecular weight epoxy and have higher viscosities even though the solids content is about 69.2%. The 'H' versions have lower crosslink density after curing and will result in a slightly lower but most likely still adequate solvent resistance. The 'H' systems have a better screen printing nature, better printing and flowing characteristics and can be dried to yield a tack free print which can later be heated further and cured. PII also makes custom Epoxy Vehicles based on Customer needs, so please e-mail us for more information regarding custom products.
