    K and N makes an ink called RT black. I think this will work for you. Im sure other ink companies either have some off the shelf product for this type of application, or if not could formulate you something.

    We did print on top of AQ or synthetic paper using special ink and additive.
    That is a Saphira SOLID black + Simulator ( fast drying agent ) and also use Aqueous additive to put into fountain solution.
    Check with your ink supplier, they will have solution if not carrying the same brand.
    Beware of the fast drying fact of the simulator, pressman went for lunch and leave the press sit idle for about an hour, it starts to dry and need a brief wash before he can carry on to print.
