Humidity-Induced Color Changes and Ink Migration Effects in Inkjet Photographs in Real-World Environmental Conditions
Abstract:This paper examines some of the long-term keeping properties exhibited by recently marketed ink jet media/ink formulations when they are exposed to moderate to high humidity conditions similar to those that can be found in real-world display and photo album storage environments. Various ink/media formulations have been subjected to humidity levels ranging from 60% to 80% RH at near-ambient room temperature environments (27 degrees Celsius) and examined for color changes over time. Test samples include both dye-based and pigment-based systems.

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.
