Resizinc: Zinc-Calcium Resinate
For adhesives, tapes, varnishes and inks
Resizinc is obtained by reacting zinc-oxide and calcium with rosin, which provides hardness and shine. This also allows it to aid in the drying process of varnishes and enamels and enhances their stability within their containers. Because of its thermoplastic characteristics, Resizinc is used in hot-melt adhesive formulas and its solubility makes it useful in printing inks, especially in rotogravure. Resizinc also serves as a curing agent for adhesive tapes.
