Fluids for New Generation Printing Technologies
Abstract:Synthetic isoparaffinic hydrocarbons have a 40+ year history as safe, high performance carrier fluids in liquid toners. A historical perspective of liquid photocopy is given as well as a review of liquid toner benefits. New technologies have introduced new performance requirements for carrier fluids, in addition to traditional fluid requirements. Hydrocarbon structures are reviewed as well as their relationship to addressing these new performance requirements. The health and environmental impact of using aliphatic hydrocarbons in non-impact printing applications is reviewed.

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.
