Changes of Color and Paper Properties in Digital Prints during Accelerated Aging
Changes to computer printer colors occurring in the course of exposure in Xenotest 105S were determined by measuring the values of L*, a*, and b* coordinates in the CIELAB color system. Changes were found to be substantial. No substantial influence of computer ink on the pH of the studied papers was established, while the influence on strength properties (tear index and breaking length) was found to vary.
Treating this research as preliminary work, the authors recognize the possibility of greater color light fastness only in the case of black-and-white prints made on the tested laser printer.

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.
