Ashland recently announced that it has appointed Anagraf Comercial Grafica SL its new partner to distribute Ashland’s varnishes, laminating adhesives, and primers for the label printing industry. This new partnership agreement, effective July 1, includes all Ashland PureRad ™ UV/EB, PureLED, and H-UV curable varnishes, laminating adhesives, and pressure-sensitive adhesives (PSAs), including Pureseal™ water-based adhesives and Purekote ™ water-based primers for the printing industry.

“We have been looking for some time to find a trusted partner in Spain with the ability and expertise to service the flexo printing market with sophisticated products,” said Jacob van der Bent, European sales manager for Adhesives. “Anagraf has an established network in Spain and Portugal, focused on high-end applications and demanding customers printing labels and packaging materials for food applications.”
