Abstract Water insoluble non-ionic graft copolymers having a hydrophobic backbone comprising adhesion promoting monomers selected from the group consisting of beta-diketone monomers and ureido monomers, and at least two hydrophilic side chains each attached at a terminal end to the backbone and each comprising polyethylene oxide macromonomers are suitable for use as binders in aqueous coating compositions contain an aqueous vehicle having from 50% to 80% by weight water, at least one water soluble or water miscible organic co-solvent; and wherein the binder is soluble in the aqueous vehicle but substantially insoluble in water and are particularly well suited for use as ink jet inks for direct printing to vinyl or other hydrophobic substrates.
