Water based, nonskid post print varnish for porous substrates This fully formulated, flexo appliable nonskid coating is designed for kraft, mottled and bleached substrates. It is used to protect electrical components, metal parts, and sensitive papers.
These papers stand up well to rain and moisture. They are great for taking notes in wet weather and for use where your notes might be subject to contact with sweat, moisture or water.
We placed a sheet of each of these papers underwater for one week, writing on them daily with a waterproof ink pen. They retained their integrity, accepting and retaining the ink.
We continued the test for one month, writing on each paper at the end of each week. At the end of one month, all of the papers were still in good condition and continued to accept and retain ink.
A standard ballpoint pen usually works well on these papers.
But, we highly recommend using a pen with waterproof ink. Why buy waterproof paper and take chances with your ink? Soluble inks and gel pen inks can wash right off.
Be sure to test your pen, printer and paper combination before going into the field or starting a project. It's not the performance of your paper that determines your level of protection - it is how your paper, writing implement and printing work together.
Some of the papers accept pencil and that eliminates concerns about inks washing off or fading over time or with exposure to light. All of these papers have been used for underwater writing. We know people who have used them while scuba diving. If you are diving more than a few feet deep you will need a paper that accepts pencil.
The air pressure in ink pen refills is lower than the water pressure at more than a few feet deep. That will cause water to flow into your pen's refill and dilute the ink. For light-duty underwater use we suggest pencil on Rite-in-the-Rain copier paper. Always test before use in a critical project.
These products are intended for short-term outdoor use - they are thin pieces of plastic. If you need long-term exposure to water a metal sign or a rigid plastic plaque is needed.
Avoid smearing and excess ink: We recommend printing using the "light" or "draft" or "economy" settings of your printer.
Printing in "high quality" or "dark" mode usually applies more ink than the paper can absorb. That will cause ink smearing or ink that does not dry.
If the ink smears or does not dry in "normal or "standard" mode see if you can print with a "light" or "economy" mode. For best results use the lightest printer setting that produces readable print. We recommend PuffinPaper or Dura Copy for best results with laser printers, PuffinPaper or iGage Paper for inkjet printers, and Rite-in-the-Rain copier paper for use with plain paper copiers.
When writing, a medium point pen works best. Broad-point pens or those that put down a thick layer of ink generally deposit excess ink that does not absorb into the paper and smears.
Fine-point pens are sharp and can dig into the synthetic plastic papers when writing. Pens that leave behind blobs of ink when you write should be thrown away. They make a mess no matter where you write with them. Use high quality ink and toner!
Most people who use the ink or toner cartridges supplied by the manufacturer of their printer have great success with all of these papers. Refilled cartridges and generic cartridges frequently provide poor results because they contain low quality inks, low quality toner, or water soluble inks.
For best performance use quality inks provided by your printer manufacturer. Exposure to sun, wind, rain, wine, spaghetti sauce, dishwashers, dogs and bullets Keep in mind that you are buying a product that is either a thin plastic film or a coated sheet of paper.
The papers that we sell might last outside for a weeks more or lessdepending upon climate and sun exposure. They will not last through repeated or prolonged exposures to hot, cold, sun, wind or other harsh conditions.
