Ink Jet Coatings for Pigmented Inks
Abstract:Outdoor-durable media for wide format ink jet printers has become available during the past several years. In its simplest form, an absorptive coating for this application consists of a water resistant binder and a white pigment at some optimum ratio and coatweight. A study was conducted to determine the effect of major formulation parameters on the properties of a model coating system.
Among the variables examined were pigment/binder ratio, coatweight, and silica type. Over 30 silicas of widely ranging particle size and oil absorption were tested. Three important image properties were measured-ink capacity, CMYK densities, and adhesion of the dry coating. The effect of each variable alone, as well as interaction among variables was determined

For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
