Gloss of Ink Jet Media at High Ink Loads
Abstract:A dozen commercially available high gloss photo papers were imaged on several wide format printers. It was found that the gloss of the printed image area is dependent on type of printer and ink used. Most of these media have a significant drop of gloss at 300 and 400 percent ink load, typically used for composite black. Although these photo papers are advertised as universal media, a significant gloss reduction is observed with some printers even for secondary colors at a 200 percent of ink load.

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.
