Application Fields

ULTRALUBE® GA 1816 is especially recommended for waterbased printing inks.


Recommendation for Use

We generally recommend a dosage of 1.0 - 4.0 % ULTRALUBE® GA 1816 in aqueous coating systems related to the total formulation.


The optimal dosage has to be determined in pre-trials.


In aqueous coating systems the product is added during or at the end of the production process.
