Solubility POLYTONE PA 302/303 is soluble In n-Butanol, n–Propanol, Cellosolve and mixtures of these with aromatic hydrocarbons e.g. Toluene and Xylene. This resin is partially soluble in iso-propanol and insoluble in ethanol , aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons. . Under certain conditions the solutions forms reversible gels on standing. In order to achieve complete solubility in alcohol solutions , sometimes it is necessary to add small percentage of water or aromatic hydrocarbon solvent . For optimum solubility blends of alcohols and hydrocarbon solvents are required.
Application/ Industry POLYTONE® PA 302/303  is a polymeric fatty acid based co-solvent grade non reactive  polyamide resin in solid form suitable for  flexographic and gravure printing inks. This resin provides excellent resistance to grease and  water, and good glossy sharp prints. It has excellent adhesion to treated polyethylene and other plastics. Polytone PA 302/303 has good flexibility and very good solvent release properties.

Characteristics Infinite Solubiity in Ethanol and Higher Alcohols  
Solubility POLYTONE PA 351 shows excellent solubility in a variety of solvents that do not attack rubber stereos . Under certain conditions the solutions forms reversible gels on standing and to avoid this, it is recommended to add small percentage of water or higher alcohols or aromatic hydrocarbon solvent. POLYTONE® PA 351 has infinite solubility in ethanol and higher alcohols. It is soluble in methanol at higher concentrations – 40% and above
Application/Industry POLYTONE® PA 351 is an alcohol soluble non reactive polyamide resin in solid form suitable for  flexographic  printing inks. This resin exhibits good anti-blocking characteristics and finds use in specialized flexographic inks and release lacquers. Inks prepared from this resin have good adhesion to a variety of substrates, excellent solvent release properties, low odour and good nitrocellulose compatibility.
