Nonformal-XL is a formaldehyde free and APEO free cross-linking agent for pigment printing which works at low temperature. Nonformal-XL has good compatibility with the auxiliaries normally employed in pigment printing and can be mixed with other cross-linking agents and water-based polymers and resins including polyacrylics, polyurethane, polyvinyl and SBR (styrene-butadiene rubber) lattices. The prints possess pleasing and soft handle and good overall fastness properties.
