BASF Thickener Provides Sharp Pigment Prints

Lutexal® GP ECO is a new powder thickener for pigment printing from Germany-based BASF AG. The microgranule thickener sharply outlines pigment prints, reduces print penetration, and has high reliability and low overall costs, according to the company. Lutexal GP ECO is environmentally friendly, producing lower emissions values than traditional liquid thickeners.Powder thickeners are the way to the future, said Tibor Duris, manager of marketing and developing BASFs textile printing auxiliaries. They contain only traces of hydrocarbons and therefore have only a very slight impact on air and wastewater.
