ViviPrint™ polymers

ViviPrint polymers produce transparent, flexible, high-gloss films with improved water resistance with the functionality to allow cross-linking to significantly improve water resistance. They are compatible with nonionic, cationic and amphoteric surfactant and soluble in ethanol and water. ViviPrint 131 polymer is produced by a proprietary in-situ process resulting in a two-phase matrix consisting of soluble polymer and nanoscale particles approximately 320 nm in size that impart improved film water-resistance as well as light-fastness and curl resistance in digital media applications.
