Kao's technology aids in the realization of printing that is in harmony with the planet and people's lives.

Kao's people and environmentally friendly printing materials propose further improvements to the value of digital printing, ideal for “small lot,” “variable” and “waste-free” printing.

Inks and Pigment dispersants for inkjet

Applying “dispersion technology” developed over many years through Kao's work in the development of detergents to pigment dispersion,
Kao has developed the pigment dispersants for inkjet with superior color developing properties and stability.
We are offering not only a pigment dispersant but also a water-based ink with harnessing these characteristics.
