Solvent-based inkjet ink


The present invention relates to a solvent-based inkjet ink containing at least a pigment, an organic solvent, a binder resin and a dispersant, wherein the dispersant has a weight average molecular weight (mw) of at least 5,000 but less than 50,000, an acid value (mgkoh/g) of 5 to 20, and an amine value (mgkoh/g) of 5 to 50. The present invention enables a dispersion of low viscosity and good stability to be generated in an extremely short dispersion time, and is able to provide an inkjet ink which forms an ink coating film that suffers no whitening and has superior resistance (abrasion resistance and alcohol resistance)..

Deep black thermoplastic molding compositions having high gloss and production thereof


Deep black thermoplastic molding compositions having high gloss can be produced by mixing the following components: 90% to 99.5% by weight of one or more styrene copolymers as component a1, or 90% to 99.5% by weight of one or more polymethylmethacrylates (pmma) and/or polyalkylmethacrylates as component a2, or 90% to 99.5% by weight of one or more polycarbonates (pc) and/or polyester carbonates as component a3, 0.01% to 5% by weight of a pigment black as component b, 0.1% to 1.5% by weight of at least two dyes soluble in the molding composition as component c, 0% to 5% by weight of one or more additives other than components b and c, as component d. These are found to be particularly weathering-resistant..
