Differential Gloss in Electrophotography
Abstract:Differential gloss is the gloss difference between substrate and the imaged areas and between imaged areas of different toner lay-down. This study is to determine the amount of differential gloss on an EP print that's visually unacceptable. Our experience and previous studies indicate that certain amount of gloss is desired on EP prints regardless of paper types. And too much differential gloss might not be acceptable by the end users. Two experiments were conducted using several EP engines with various fusing controls to generate prints with a wide range of gloss and differential gloss. The finding is that differential gloss is not an issue as long as the finished surfaces of an image is perceived uniform.

For more than 25 years, NIP has been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in non-impact and digital printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems, including drop-on-demand ink jet, wide format ink jet, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based electrophotographic printers, production digital printing systems, and thermal printing systems, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields.
Since 2005, NIP has been held in conjunction with the Digital Fabrication Conference.
