Water-borne ink, an industrially important ink based on the polyacrylates, in that polyacrylamides imparts specific properties to the inks. Some properties of inks such as glossy or hardness is also adjust by varying the polymers, so in the present studies, nanocomposites of Polyacrylamide /Nanoclay/copper oxide nanoparticles were synthesized. The Nanoclay and Nanoparticles was varied to 0.5, 1 and 2% with respect to monomer of acrylamide and the effect of physical properties of ink such as, density, viscosity, surface tension, drying and smudging were performed to see the performance of it on polymer nanocomposites mixed in ink. The final product were characterized by UV-Vis and FTIR were used to see the presence of individual component of nanocomposites. It was found that the solution with polymer nanocomposites shows, improved in the physical properties with variation of 2% with respect to ink solution. Finally the biological activities were performed to see the effect of it on the ink solution.
