Brandt Technologies is excited to announce the addition of Lubrizol’s PrintRite™ digital ink receptive technology to their extensive portfolio of specialty raw materials for the graphic arts industry.
PrintRite™ ink receptive coatings are used to control the ink droplet spread, or dot gain, by rapidly absorbing the ink carrier fluid, thereby leaving the colorant at or near the substrate surface. This delivers the best image definition and color strength, while improving the ink dry time and durability of the printed image. Engineered to bridge the performance of substrate and ink, PrintRite ink receptive coatings create new possibilities in digital print performance through visual appeal and efficient workflow.
In order to comply with evolving regulatory requirements, Lubrizol offers PrintRite™ coatings that are compatible with solvent, eco-solvent, UV, and water-based inkjet systems for use on paper, film, or textile substrates.
PrintRite™ coatings are available in ready-to-use formulations which are coater-ready and designed to work hand-in-hand with specific inks and substrates to deliver desired end-use properties. Semi-formulated PrintRite™ resins are also available where in-house formulation flexibility is required.
Please contact us to learn more about PrintRite™ coatings and other products for inkjet applications.
