Polymers are very useful to improve the print durability and already used in many printing systems such as electrophotography. It relies mainly on the property that polymers can make a film to fix the colorants on the media. And polymers are also very useful to control the flow property of the ink fluid. For applying these properties to the ink jet system, the combination of polymer emulsion colorant and appropriate polymeric additives is thought to be efficient. This work was undertaken to study the ability of polymeric additives in the pigment contained polymer emulsion based ink to improve the jetting phenomena holding good print reliability and durability. Several kinds of water-soluble polymer such as polyether, polyamide, polyelecrolyte were added to the pigment contained polymer emulsion based ink, and the change of physical properties of ink was investigated. It was shown experimentally that polyamide and polyethylenglycol derivatives were useful to reduce the kogation and to elevate the drop velocity without deterioration of the print durability.

  • 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.
