Kaolin Clay for Ink Industry

Hydrous Kaolin is commonly used as a filler or extender in offset printing inks. Offset printing is a popular technique for high-volume commercial printing, and kaolin can help improve the ink's opacity, rheology, and absorption properties. Kaolin can be incorporated into flexographic inks to enhance print quality, opacity, and drying characteristics. Kaolin can also be used in digital printing inks, which are commonly employed in inkjet printers. In digital printing, kaolin can assist in achieving high-quality prints with good color reproduction, improved drying time, and reduced ink bleeding. Ink manufacturers often experiment with different combinations of ingredients, including Hydrous kaolin and Calcined Kaolin, to achieve the desired ink performance for specific applications.
