Packaging and ink coating technologies

The allnex ECOWISE™ CHOICE portfolio presents cutting-edge solutions for packaging and inks applications. These advanced technologies encompass powder coating resins like CRYLCOAT®, waterborne resins such as DAOTAN®, and radiation curable resins exemplified by EBECRYL®. Aligning with stringent global standards, these products cater to the rising demand for sustainable alternatives in the packaging and inks industry. Explore these technologies to discover the optimal fit for your application!

Application Technology

Powder coating

Powder coating technology offers numerous environmental benefits, including the absence of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and hazardous air pollutants (HAPs). It also has the advantage of reduced waste through the potential for 100% powder usage. One example is CRYLCOAT® 2857-5, a food contact compliant, hydroxy functional polyester resin for metal/glass packaging.

Application Technology

Radiation curable

Radiation curable resins, such as EBECRYL® 820, are ideal for inkjet inks and flexography inks. They deliver exceptional performance while meeting industry sustainability requirements. They offer benefits such as high gloss potential, abrasion resistance and increased pigment loading. This contributes to both the visual appeal and durability of the final product whilst meeting goals for energy efficiency and renewable sourcing.

Application Technology


allnex ECOWISE™ CHOICE range offers waterborne resins, such as DAOTAN® TW 6450/30WA. This provides excellent water resistance, improved flexibility and higher adhesion to plastics​​. These technologies align with the sustainability goals of the industry, offering a lower environmental footprint, without compromising on overall performance..
