Metal Oxides

Graphic Arts

High-end packaging and printed materials demand coatings that optimize appearance and longevity. When formulated into radiation cured or water-based overprint varnishes, NanoArc® Aluminum Oxide dispersions provide superior scratch and mar resistance.

Functioning differently than conventional additives, NanoArc® Aluminum Oxide dispersions are active at low loading levels and do not adversely effect gloss. They do not migrate to the interface so they provide long-term scratch resistance without negatively impacting slip or coefficient of friction. Therefore, NanoArc® Aluminum Oxide is a cost-effective additive for improving durability and esthetics for graphic arts applications.
