Out of stock
inkAID Clear Semi-Gloss Inkjet receptive coating can be applied to any material that can go through your printer. It provides a slightly translucent, satin finish that allows the underlying surface to appear through the coating.

Clear Gloss Precoat Type II

It contains an adhesive material that provides very good adhesion to non-porous materials such as aluminum, copper, metal foil, marble and plastics such as Mylar, Lexan, Plexiglas, and Acetate. It can also be used on porous materials such as watercolor and printmaking papers, Japanese rice paper and other handmade and specialty papers, fabrics, canvas, wallpaper, and wood veneer. Non-porous surfaces require one heavy coat while porous materials will need a light to moderate coating applied. inkAID Clear Gloss Type II is not water resistant. If the print is to be top coated use only solvent based top coatings and varnishes. More info here
