Polysaccharide Resins

Sustainable Paint and Ink Additives

Lorama Polysaccharide Resin Technology (LPRT) offers the formulators of coatings and inks the potential for significant cost saving, processing improvements and a reduction in VOC's.

See the LPR™ series for more information on how to effectively incorporate water into solvent-based alkyds, leading to cost reduction and helping to meet environmental targets.

ECØ FLO™ is a humectant used to slow the evaporation of water from aqueous coatings and colourants. 

INKRES™ is a film forming polysaccharide resin that can partially replace acrylic emulsions in flexographic ink formulations, improving press resolubility and stability.


    • ECØ FLO™ is a high-solids, VOC-free, polysaccharide humectant.

    • INKRES™ 33 is a film-forming polysaccharide resin. Also VOC-free.

    • LPR™ series are polysaccharide resins that act as emulsifiers.

    • Non-toxic and non-irritating.

    • Green products derived from sustainable feedstocks.


    • ECØ FLO™ slows down the drying process of aqueous systems, allowing for greater workability.

    • INKRES™ 33 improves press resolubility and stability when using aqueous flexographic inks.

    • LPR™ series allows for cost reductions and improvement of VOC levels in solvent-based alkyd paints, through the emulsification of water.

Typical Applications

    • Solvent-based alkyd coatings.

    • Aqueous flexographic inks.

    • Aqueous and universal colourants.

    • Aqueous coatings.
