KS-5008 Nestle Compliant Photoinitiator Compound

PI1Kustom Group is pleased to announce the development of KS-5008 Nestle Compliant Photoinitiator Compound.

KS-5008 employs a new and revolutionary manufacturing process which allows it to be made into a soft paste that can be easily stirred into energy-curable ink.

KS-5008 is very efficient and is suggested to be used in 1-8% of the ink formulation, depending on the pigment content and the pigment type chosen. KS-5008 can also be used in the making of H-UV and LED inks when coupled with a Nestle-compliant acrylated amine in the formulation. For a recommendation on the appropriate acrylated amine, please contact Kustom R&D lab personnel.

Although the pictures give some indication of the flow and body of the KS-5008, we highly recommend that you request a small sample from your Kustom Group representative to look at it for yourself. Samples are readily available.
