Key Words: Soy-based Polyols, Soy-based Inks
They will use soy oil, glycerin, soy oil fatty acids as well as polymerized structures in combination with various monomers to increase molecular weight and produce a polymer which is soluble in commonly used offset ink oils. Their main objective is to utilize soy oil, soy oil fatty acid, and also biodiesel glycerin (1,2,3 propanetriol).
