Zirconium Propionate (ZPP ZPP, Zr Pro | 84057-80-7

Zirconium Propionate is used as an adhesion promoter in printing inks (Flexographic and gravure). It improves adhesion for printing onto difficult substrates, such as polyethylene, polypropylene, polyester, metals, and other packaging materials.

Appearance

The powder is not soluble in water, but soluble in ethanol, ethyl acetate and isopropanol. (Solubility in ethyl acetate and ethanol is >150 g/100 ml solvent and in isopropanol is >65 g/100 ml solvent).

Chemical analysis

C12H20O8Zr

Rest of world: 25 kg quad retainers 250 kg plastic drums, 1,250 kg intermediate bulk containers.

North and South America: 50 pound pails 550 lb drums 3,300 pounds totes.

Bulk containers available upon request.

  • Safer alternative to titanium acetylacetonate to promote adhesion
  • Improves adhesion for printing onto difficult substrates, such as polyethylene, polypropylene, polyester, metals, and other packaging materials
  • Improves heat and scrub resistance of polyamide based inks
  • Functions particularly well with cellulose acetate propionate (CAP) and nitro cellulose resins, where adhesion is required to co-extrude polyolefin films
  1. Adhesion promoter for solvent-based inks
  2. Source of zirconium, soluble in organic solvents, for applications involving crosslinking with oxygenated organic polymers
  3. Precursor to zirconium oxide, through a solventbased process
  4. Crosslinker for polyvinyl alcohol (suitable for nonaqueous, organic solvents)
