Topics for the Fulfillment by Inkjet Materials of Permanence Requirements for Digital Printing
Abstract:In Europe the standardization- body CEN TC 172 has set up a Working Group for inkjet paper. An important task of this group is to specify and test inkjet consumables for permanence requirements. Light-fastness, water-fastness, smearing resistance and waviness are the important points for a new European Standard. This new standard should establish guidelines for inkjet-prints to be used as photographic prints and also for packaging, especially label printing. The test methods used will be discussed and also results of investigations of light-fastness and water-fastness will be pointed out. Limits will be specified for requirements, which are good enough to permit the use of the inkjet prints for labels and as replacement for photographic prints.
The main factors of this investigation are related to inks, paper and different inkjet technologies.

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.
