Abstract:Decolorable ink developed by Toshiba consists of leuco dye, developer, and eraser. The key to fabricating an effective imaging material is to find a balance among these three components. There is equilibrium between colored leuco dye and colorless leuco dye. Because the equilibrium is dominated by colorless state in a solution, an addition of solvent to the ink instantly make it colorless. A similar decoloring process is performed by heating. This decolorable ink technology could be applied to almost all imaging materials.

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.
