Kodak Ultima Picture Paper


What is it used for?

This is paper used to print digital pictures on a home printer.


What's nano about it?

The paper is composed of nine layers, which includes the paper, resin, and coatings. The top layer is a proprietary ceramic nano-particle layer that improves the mechanical strength and gloss of the paper.


How does it work?

Smaller particles smooth out the roughness in the paper better than larger particles. This allows light to reflect more evenly making the paper look glossy. The multiple separated layers must adhere to one another and mechanical strength is a result of this layering.
