inkAID™ Clear Gloss
inkAID Clear Gloss Precoat can be applied to any paper or porous substrate that can go through your printer. It is especially useful where you want to preserve the color, pattern, or image on the surface of the substrate. It is not recommended for application to non-porous substrates (metals, films, etc.). For these substrates use inkAID Clear Gloss Type II.
Directions: Applying inkAID Clear Gloss Precoat
- Check MSDS Clear Gloss Precoat for safety instructions in handling this product. Wear protective gloves.
- Stir inkAID Gloss Precoat before applying.
- Foam brushes are the preferred applicator, as they provide a smoother coating than bristle brushes. Brush onto the surface in even strokes, applying a moderate amount of coating. On smooth, non-porous surfaces apply enough coating so that the coating begins to flow and level by itself. A second light coating can be applied if necessary after allowing the surface to dry overnight. On papers and other porous materials, a second coating, applied perpendicularly to the first, is often used. inkAID coatings may be diluted with 5 – 10% water if needed.
- Allow the print to dry for a day or two before any top coating is applied. After top coating, you can coat it with other, compatible coatings (such as acrylic medium) for further protection or work over the print with natural media.
