6 Advantages of EB laminating Adhesives Instant Cure: Immediate shipping available No Toxicity Concerns of Isocyanates or residual Aromatic Amines In-Line Printing and Lamination Compatible with commercial inks Excellent laminate appearance

7 EB LAMINATING ADHESIVES ADVANTAGES FEATURE BENEFIT INSTANT CURE INSTANT CURE LESS LABOR- NO WAREHOUSING LAMINATE TO EDGE INSTANT CURE INSTANT CURE TAILOR MADE VISCOSITY, WIDE RANGE APPLICATION METHODS REAL TIME QUALITY CONTROL REDUCE INK COST, ELIMINATE ADHESIVE ETCHING OF INK CAN USE EXISTING COATING EQUIPMENT

8 Value/Performa nce High Retort, Aqueous Foods EB Laminating Adhesive Market Medium Meat&Cheese, Coffee Snacks EB Low Bottle labels, Dry Foods

9 Flexography solvent Based Ink With In-Line EB Laminating

10 EB laminating Adhesive Technology Summary Excellent film bonding properties has been achieved with multiple substrates. BOPP, PET, LDPE based sealant films, Aluminum Foil, and Paper Board. Excellent bond performance with commercial flexo and rotogravure ink systems Laminate exhibit good water, and food resistance. Suitable for food packaging FDA compliance no taint or odor. Retort Compliance still a challenge Cost compatible with other incumbent time cured adhesive technology Capital Cost Justification Challenging

11 Commercial Status of EB Laminating Adhesive Technology Commercial In-Line solvent based rotogravure printing and EB Laminating for Dry Detergent. Structure OPP/EB adhesive/gravureprint /PaperBoard OPP Provides MVTR Commercial In-Line solvent based Flexo Printing and EB Laminating for Paper Reams Structure OPP/Solvent Based Print/OPP Commercial In-Line water based stack Flexo and EB laminating Adhesive for BaseBall Cards Structure OPP/WaterBased Flexo/Metallized OPP Line speeds over 350mpm achieved Good Success With Commercial solvent and water based Flexo & Gravure Inks

12 Challenges Faced By Converters Runs Getting Shorter Market Demand For Sharper and more Graphic Changes JIT Reduce Inventory and Run Lengths Graphic Quality Keeps Increasing Frequent Design Changes Cost Needs to Come Down Color Match Globally Sustainable Packaging

13 Technical Developments Gravure for flexible packaging No new developments Flexo for flexible packaging Sheet-offset for labels and folding cartons General flexography technology, Photo polymer plate dvlpmnt Water based EB Flexo EB Cured-Flexo Ink No new developments Web-Offset for folding cartons and flexible packaging Variable formats/repeat Central Impression CI-8

20 EB CI-Flexo Technology Development Patent or Application Number Filing Date Assignment Abstract US 5,690,028 June, 1996 Cavanaugh Corporation USA Method of achieving wet trapping by heating the subsequent ink to reduce viscosity US 6,772,683 Feb, 2002 Sun Chemical USA WO/2010/ Dec, 2009 Technosolutions Brazil WO/2011/ Jan, 2011 Sun Chemical USA Method of achieving wet trapping by evaporating non-reactive diluent and increasing viscosity of the applied layer Method of achieving wet trapping by evaporating a non- reactive diluent and forming an organo gel in the applied layer Method of achieving wet trapping by controlling the storage modulus of the ink. Each applied ink layer will have decreased modulus

21 Advantages of EB Curing CI-Flexo Technology NO VOC NO Incineration or Recovery System Very Low Energy Consumption Compared to Heat or UV Curing Curing/Drying Systems No Ovens No Inter-station Drying No Remaining Solvents Stability/Handling No Dry-In No Press Side Adjustments Water Washable

22 Advantages of EB Curing CI-Flexo Technology EB CI-Flexo Process In-Line Printing and Laminating Performance Advantages High Gloss High Definition Graphics Dot Structure and Dot Gain Higher Line Screen Up to 70 L/cm High Color Efficiency Finer Anilox Less Ink Consumption Crosslinked Systems Instant Cure Scratch & Solvent Resistance Heat Resistance Food Packaging Compliant No Photo Initiator No Odor/Taint

23 Status of the EB CI-Flexo Ink Process Installations in Americas and Europe For Food & Non- Food Packaging Multiple Ink Suppliers & Technologies Wet trapping by evaporation of non reactive diluent & forming viscosity gradients in trapped layers. Wet trapping by evaporation of non reactive diluent & forming organo gel. Wet trapping by thermally drying water in between decks and curing finally with EB to improve printed ink properties Retrofit For Existing CI-Flexo Press. EB Press with NO Dryers for first 2 technologies Broad Range of Substrates. Paper, PE, OPP, PVC, Aluminum Foil On-Site Demonstration available at Major Flexo Press Manufacturers.

24 In-Line EB Printing and Laminating Makes Sense Instantaneous Cure Provides JIT Market Demand EB Cured Flexo and Offset Inks Provide Higher Print & Graphic Quality Quick turnovers and make ready with EB printing and in-line laminating provides quick turn around for shorter runs EB Curing Offers Solventless Printing and Laminating with the lowest Carbon Foot Print Capital Cost of EB equipment is shared by curing inks and laminating adhesives together In situ curing of inks & laminating adhesive using similar chemistry poses less challenges than laminating EB cured inks with conventional PU type adhesives and vice versa. New low voltage EB equipment are designed for lowest Power Consumption and least affects on substrates
