The Heart of Nanography®
Prints on Anything
Many materials, when reduced to nano particle size, acquire unexpected properties. Some particles become super-hard, able to protect surfaces from abrasion; some become super-absorbent in the blood stream, enabling unique drug delivery systems.
In the course of a decade of research, Landa observed that ink pigments, when reduced to nanometric scale, become unusually powerful colorants.
On the basis of this discovery, Landa created Landa NanoInk® containing ultra-small pigment particles that are tens of nanometers in size – about one-half the size of pigment particles used in offset ink.
Water-based Landa NanoInk® colorants are at the core of the Landa Nanographic Printing® Process and help make it a breakthrough printing technology.
THE DIFFERENCE IS IN THE DOTS
The precise and extremely efficient low ink lay-down enables a Landa NanoInk® image to consistently produce extremely round dots with super-sharp edges and high optical uniformity and consistent density. This is equally true whether you are printing on glossy or matte paper—or on any other substrate.
EXTENDED COLOR GAMUT
The extremely small size of the Landa NanoInk® pigments achieve a light dynamic range in the Nanographic Printing process wider than any other printing process. The four color palette (CMYK) and seven color palette (CMYK + OBG) cover more Pantone colors than offset printing and practically eliminate the need for spot colors, off press color mixing and on-press ink replacements.
PRINTS ON ANY MEDIA
One of the most important benefits of Landa NanoInk® is that the ultra-thin Nanographic Printing ink film has the extraordinary ability to bond to any off-the-shelf paper and plastic printing substrates. Due to Nanographic Printing® process, Landa NanoInk® images can be applied to a wide range of sheet or web substrates without any priming or pretreatment. It prints on any off-the-shelf, coated or uncoated paper, newsprint, heavy cartonboard, and plastic (such as PE, PET, PVC, BOPP).
