In this report, we will introduce Halogen-Free Ink MIX-HF which realizes mirror effect with no dulling and improves sufficient resistance to printed ink layer by printing as protective layer of Mirror ink (mirror effect ink).


1. MIX-HF realizes mirror effect with no dulling and improves
    resistance by printing as protective layer of Mirror Ink

1. MIX-HF Ink provides excellent performance as protective layer
         of Mirror ink

Since mirror effect layer which was formed by printing Mirror Ink (mirror effect ink) on polycarbonate substrate is easy to be damaged by scratch, it is necessary to overprint screen ink as protective layer. However, it was hard for ordinary ink to maintain mirror effect as well as resistance to printed ink layer because it caused dulling in mirror surface.

So, Halogen-Free Ink MIX-HF which balances maintaining excellent mirror effect and resistance to printed ink layer has been newly developed.

 

2. Realize mirror effect with high chroma in combination
         with TOC-HF and MIR-51000 Mirror Silver

MIX-HF ink also enables vivid color mirror effect with no dulling, in combination with TOC-HF and MIR-51000 Mirror Silver.
