The aim of the project was to tailor the surface of the paper by chemical treatment in order to control and adjust the absorption properties and surface chemistry of the paper. This would enable low and even absorption of printing ink. It was important to increase the know-how of interactions between paper surface and chemical compounds to reach the goal. The results proved that the paper surface chemistry is in key position in the absorption of most printing inks, and the chemistry of paper can be dramatically influenced with very small amount of proper polymer.
