Monokan The Monokan ink system is the result of long research into achieving the excellent adhesion properties normally related to a two pot ink system in a one pot system. Monokan is a blocked catalyst system, which means that the ink remains quite stable in the can, but after printing, the catalyst reacts to improve adhesion and general product resistance. More info on Monokan
Corrogloss The Corrogloss system was developed for the printing of fully Corona-treated corrugated plastic sheets (Corflute) and similar products manufactured from special co-polymer resins. The inks have excellent scuff resistance and dry to a good even gloss level. More info on Corrogloss
