Leading inks and media producer Lyson has introduced a range of brush-on Print Guard lacquers to extend its best-selling range of aerosol products.
When applied to water soluble images, Print Guard provides a water-protective coating and greatly increase UV resistance to fading. It also stops image fading caused by exposure to environmental gases.
 Designed primarily for use on inkjet-generated prints, Print Guard is equally effective on other water-based images such as drawing ink or watercolour fine art paintings.
Containing special UV blockers that extend the life of an inkjet print by up to five times that of an unprotected, Print Guard works especially well with magenta inkjet dyes - traditionally the inkjet colour with the greatest risk of fading - offering an improvement of up to 400%. Fade resistance of black is increased by up to 50%, and of cyan and yellow by up to 10%. The inclusion of dye fixatives significantly reduces colour shift, particularly where OEM dye-based inks are used.
New Print Guard lacquer in cans comes in gloss and satin version, both of which are available in fast and slow drying formats. The slow dry products on coated media permit a self levelling, so that brush strokes flow out realistically. The fast dry option renders film surfaces smooth but may also be used to create brush or varnish patters - especially after multicoating.
Print Guard has been designed to coat and protect gloss, semi-gloss and matt photoprint media, coated canvas, and transparencies. With matt papers, best results are obtained after several light applications.
As with all Lyson inkjet products, Print Guard is available through the company's global distributor network. Tel: 0161 442 2111.
