Lamination Performance of Ink Jet Matte Papers
Abstract:In media with non-porous substrates the ink receiving layer absorbs all inks. In porous substrates such as cellulosic, the substrate absorbs a significant amount of water and chemicals passing through the ink receiving layer. A difference in absorption between two types of media has an effect on interactions with lamination films. A dozen commercially available media were printed with several inks and laminated. It was found that laminating adhesion increases with the paper base weight. Peel strength is also dependent on type and characteristic of paper sheets. An interaction of inks with paper sizing agents can significantly reduce internal bond strength. The paper internal strength was frequently lower than the adhesion between laminating film and ink receiving layer and in the delamination test the paper was torn apart.

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.
