Cross-Linked Ink Jet Layers of Gelatin/Polyvinyl Alcohol Mixtures
Abstract:In this study we investigated different types of gelatin with respect to compatibility with a water soluble polymer like polyvinyl alcohol, which is widely used as a component in ink receiving layers. The influence of conditions like concentration, composition, as well as pH level, on the phase behaviour were determined for different gelatin and polyvinyl alcohol (PVAL) types in solutions and in casted films using turbidity measurements and data from microscopic studies. A “compatible” system of PVAL and a chemically modified gelatine was described. Because of the importance of water resistance in ink receiving layers, we additionally focused on the cross-linking process of gelatin and a mixture of gelatin and PVAL with a common hardening agent. Cross-linking efficiency was rheologically determined using different temperatures and hardener concentrations.

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.
