In 1992, first pigmented ink jet inks containing carbon blacks were patented [1]. This innovation gives many opportunities to extend the possible use of the ink jet technology into outdoor application or photo realistic prints.

The influence of carbon blacks different in structure, primarily particle size and pH value on the applicational properties of pigmented ink jet inks is part of this paper. Furthermore, the differences between carbon blacks produced using different production proccesses are investigated. Test prints are made on different types of commonly used ink jet paper. Test methods include measurements of the physical properties of the ink jet inks and papers used, evaluation of test prints, and electron and light micrographs of thin cuts of the printed papers.
