Inkjet Clear Coatings

Post-printing clear coating enhances the aesthetics of packaging, labelling, direct mail, and other products. Coatings can add a glossy appearance to a matte finish or the opposite, adding a matte finish to a glossy ink surface. Our coatings add to the finished product’s print durability to increase lightfastness and scratch and rub resistance. Coatings may create a barrier to reduce ink migration.*

Inkjet Primers

Pre-coating with Kao inkjet primers improves the surface adhesion and durability of inkjet inks. Our primers extend the range of substrates that can be printed with a single type of ink. Ink-receptive primers improve print quality with increased drop sharpness. When ink absorption for porous substrates is a concern or enhanced adhesion for non-porous substrates using curable inks, our primers improve results.
