Imerys is a major global supplier of high quality mineral additives to the printing inks industry. The most recent innovations are a new range of high performance kaolins for offset and packaging inks.
ImerPrint™ 07K is a high performance kaolin designed to improve the lithotronic behaviour of offset inks, by providing good water uptake without kaolin washout or bleeding into the fount solution. This allows a higher addition level in to the inks formulation, thus delivering more effective cost-performance solutions.
The use of ImerPrint™ 07K in lithographic inks maintains colour strength, and provides good pigment efficiency and ink mileage. The platey kaolin structure of ImerPrint™ 07K reduces ink penetration into paper fibres resulting in better ink holdout onto the paper surface and reduced strike-through.
ImerPrint™ 02K is a high performance kaolin designed to extend TiO2 in water and solvent based flexographic inks, by providing good opacity and colour performance whilst maintaining high gloss. ImerPrint™ 02K enhances TiO2 efficiency and provides a cost savings and sustainable solution for packaging inks and varnishes.
ImerPrint™ 02K is produced from naturally-occurring kaolin mineral deposits and is safe to use in food packaging inks.
