Most of Axcentive’s products are plasticizers in one way or the other and Ketjenflex® 8 is no exception. However what most people do not know is that it has another powerful effect as adhesion promoter.
Where the plasticizing function of Ketjenflex® 8 is perhaps interchangeable with other products, the adhesion effect of Ketjenflex® 8 in inks, coatings, hot melts and adhesives difficult substrates such as PMMA-PET, BOPP, PE or PVDC is unique. We have therefore started selling Ketjenflex® 8 on its merits as an adhesion promoter with very positive feedback. The additional solvating and plasticizing effect make it an interesting package in one product.
