Water-based systems

We are convinced that water-based solutions are the future in packaging printing. With our Joncryl® portfolio for water-based inks, overprint varnishes and coatings, we offer a safer and healthier solution that performs as well as solvent-based systems.

For direct food contact, our Joncryl® HPB products give you much more freedom to create more sustainable, paper-based packaging. Our water-based high-performance barrier polymers help to create effective barriers for grease, mineral oil, water (vapor) and oxygen and are a great alternative to waxes and fluorocarbons.

A perfect closure of paper and flexible packaging keeps produce fresh and reduces food waste. So have a look at our broad range of Joncryl® HSL binders for heat-seal lacquers to find the perfect formulation for this purpose. 

More about Joncryl® HPB & Joncryl® HSL


Effective liquid printable barrier coatings created with our Joncryl® HPB range enable packaging to get recycled via the regular paper waste stream. 

Our Joncryl® binders for water-based printing inks, overprint varnishes and coatings are fully recyclable.

Most of the printing ink and overprint varnishes (OPV) produced with our water-based binders for food packaging are certified for compostable packaging and evaluations for barrier coatings are ongoing.
