Two kinds finish is popular ,glossy and satin .They have a microporous ink receiving layer optimized for the dye inks used in dry minilabs. Thus, the prints offer a very high sharpness, brilliant colours and deep blacks without noticeable matting even at high ink load. The pleasant, slightly warmish base tint pleases skin tones, the wide colour gamut allows rich colours with most subtle tonal scales and finest details. The prints will feel instantly dry after printing and are smudge-proof and splash-water resistant.
The microporous layer is the superior coating used for inkjet photo paper. The coating has micro pores or nano pores (smaller pores than micro), which is based on silica or alumina, but in these days, the material is rare due to high cost. What is important is this coating can accommodate all types of inks, dye and pigment due to its pores, and also can cope very well with the particles in the pigment ink which “sit” well in or on the pores of the microporous coating.
