Digital Inks & Ink Receptive Coatings

polymers_digital_inks_receptive_coatings.png

Application Description

Latex emulsion polymers are used as the binder in digital inks and for an ink receptive coating. The purpose of the ink receptive coating is to be able to readily accept the digital ink to prevent bleeding and maintain a sharp image. In addition to good binding and adhesion, digital printing requires precise control of rheology along with fast drying.
