Nagase offers a variety of technologies for paper and inks, with a portfolio that includes materials for thermal and carbonless paper, ink jet, toner and ultraviolet (UV) applications. We leverage the strengths of our group companies, such Sofix Corporation and Fukui Yamada Chemical, to provide multifaceted solutions. Partner with Nagase to innovate your brand for success.

Ink Jet Materials


Water-based, solvent-based, and monomer-based additives.


Water-based, solvent-based, and monomer-based dyes.

Pigment Dispersions

Water-based, solvent-based, and monomer-based dispersions.

Polymerization Inhibitors

Additives for UV inkjet applications.

Polymeric Microparticles

Crosslinked acrylic and styrenic microspheres. Suited for waterborne and solvent-borne systems. Excellent dispersability in paint formulations. Excellent compatibility with coated film. Durable matte or soft-feel coating, which has superior scratch and mar resistance.

Formulators can use it to deliver high-performance coatings that fulfill customer needs while imparting additional processing and end-use benefits. Denacol EX-622 can be used both in traditional epoxy systems and non-isocyanate (NISO) systems. Standard epoxy curatives such as amines can be used with Denacol EX-622 for traditional epoxy systems. For NISO systems, Denacol EX-622 can

UV-Curable Coatings Materials

Mono- and multi-functional cycloaliphatic epoxies. Grades include low viscosity, good transparency, high heat resistance, high Tg, and good electrical properties. Non-yellowing with high flexibility and toughness. Suitable for thermal cure or UV cure (cationic).

Mono- and multi-functional aliphatic epoxy crosslinkers, reactive diluents, and modifiers. Grades include high functionality, varying degrees of water solubility, low chlorine content, hydroxyl functionality, and bio-based content. Low viscosity and non yellowing. Provides good adhesion to metal and nylon substrates.

Hydroxy-functional epoxy acrylates and methacrylates for UV/EB-curable ink, coating, and adhesive applications.
