1 introduction

most of the organic volatile compounds (VOCs) contained in solvent based inks are flammable and toxic, which will cause serious pollution to the environment and then endanger human health. Long term inhalation of organic volatiles will lead to fatigue, memory decline and even death. VOC is directly discharged into the atmosphere, which will produce photochemical smog or acid fog under ultraviolet radiation, and some organic volatiles will also cause damage to the atmospheric ozone layer. In order to limit the pollution and harm of VOC in printing inks to the environment, since the 1960s, countries around the world have successively promulgated and implemented relevant laws and regulations, which have made strict regulations on the emission of VOC in printing inks. At the same time, ink scientists and technicians are also constantly developing new inks that contain little or no VOC, meet environmental protection requirements and meet printing suitability, and water-based inks came into being

after decades of development and research, water-based inks have made great progress in performance and application. Water-based inks are mainly water, with non-toxic or low toxic organic solvents as solvents and diluents. They are not only cheap, have good printing adaptability, but also non-toxic, aromatic, safe and environmentally friendly, and are favored by the printing industry. Different water-based inks have different properties and applications due to different main film-forming resins. At present, the main successful applications are Maleic Anhydride Addition rosin resin water-based flexographic ink, acrylic resin flexographic and intaglio water-based ink, water-based soybean oil alkyd resin ink and water-based epoxy resin concave ink for packaging and decoration printing. From the perspective of application, it is difficult to achieve the optimal characterization of the comprehensive performance of the product by using a single variety of main film-forming resin in the formulation structure of water-based ink. Through careful selection of synthetic materials and optimization of the synthetic process, acrylic resin and Maleic Anhydride Addition rosin resin are obtained. In the presence of neutralizer, they form a uniform and stable water-based binder in the water composite solvent system. After dispersing and grinding with coloring pigments, fillers and additives, this binder is used to obtain water-based flexographic ink with excellent comprehensive performance

2.1 preparation of aqueous composite binder

2.1.1 synthesis of acrylic lotion main raw materials

acrylic acid, methyl methacrylate, butyl methacrylate, styrene, ammonium persulfate, emulsifier, OP-10 distilled water process operation

a four port flask equipped with a stirrer, a spherical condenser, a drip funnel, a thermowell, and a water bath heating is used. First, add distilled water and emulsifier into the four port reaction flask of the device, stir and heat up; After mixing the monomers, add them into the bottle through the dropping funnel. At the same time, add sodium bicarbonate and ammonia to adjust the system ph=7 ~ 8, and turn on the condensate; When the temperature rises to 75 ℃, add ammonium persulfate, and continue to raise the temperature until the implementation of the guidance of the general office of the State Council on promoting the relocation and transformation of hazardous chemical production enterprises in densely populated urban areas. The end point is to keep the temperature at 85 ℃ for 2 hours, and then raise the temperature at 95 ℃ for 1 hour. The white lotion is filtered for standby

2.1.2 synthesis of Maleic Anhydride Addition rosin resin main raw materials

maleic anhydride, super rosin, pentaerythritol process operation

put the crushed rosin into three bottles, which are equipped with agitators and balls. Immediately communicate with customers about condensers and thermometers, and heat them with electric heating jackets. Raise the temperature to 170 ~ 180 ℃, melt the material, start stirring after melting, turn on condensation and reduce the temperature by 160 ℃, add maleic anhydride, control the feeding speed and prevent overflow; Heat preservation at 210 ~ 220 ℃ for 2 hours, raise the temperature to 230 ℃, add pentaerythritol, heat preservation and esterification at 260 ~ 265 ℃, measure the acid value after 2 hours, and discharge the material immediately when AV ≤ 160mgkoh/g

2.1.3 preparation of aqueous binder main raw materials

acrylic acid copolymerization lotion (self-made), Maleic Anhydride Addition rosin resin (self-made), isopropanol, ethanol, ethylene glycol, ether, monoethanolamine, distilled water process operation

put isopropanol and ethylene glycol ether into a three necked flask, turn on condensation and raise the temperature to 40 ℃, put crushed Maleic Anhydride Addition rosin resin under stirring, raise the temperature to 70 ~ 75 ℃, keep the temperature for 2 hours, after the resin dissolves (transparent in the bottle), put ethanol under 60 ℃, use a dropping funnel to drop acrylic copolymer lotion and monoethanolamine into the bottle at the same time, and the dropping speed is appropriate if there is no condensate in the system; After feeding, keep the system ph=7.5 ~ 8.5, keep the temperature for 1 hour, and the temperature does not exceed 60 ℃. The system is uniform. After the 230 single leaf flat open multi-function door is transparent, adjust the viscosity with distilled water to be appropriate, and filter the discharge to obtain the water-based composite acrylic resin binder
