Well-known for its speciality films, Kernow Coatings provide one
of the largest ranges of materials possible for the
Even though Solvent and UVC have become
potent new technologies, we are still developing updated
aqueous inkjet coatings today, aimed at creating new
products to suit the latest printers on the market.
Newcomers such as the HP Z6100 have, for example,
encouraged us to reconsider some of our coating
formulations, with the result that we have developed one
of our best universal aqueous coatings so far. Aqueous
isn’t dead for sure, far from it!
Just like any other range from Kernow Coatings the HydroJet range
is based on tough polyester-based films for better
stability and durability. But a distinguishing feature
of HydroJet is its ‘Hydro’, water-based coating
formulation. Safer and cleaner for our environment to
and to dispose of
(no solvent contents in the coating and no VOC from the base
film, unlike PVC materials) it does not compromise on
functionality, still able to generate a high degree of
water-resistance in use, high ink absorption, fast
drying, maximum vibrancy , with anti-static back
coatings to allow better roll feed.
Most of the HydroJet materials should work in this way although a
small selection of our products are kept specifically to
be only suitable for thermal and dye inks systems (for
market reasons). The bulk of the newer products are
universally compatible with Dye, Pigmented, Ultrachrome
and Vivera inks including printers such as the latest
HP, Epson, Canon and Roland aqueous inkjet printers.
