Interpretation of Life-of-Display Prediction Calculated from Accelerated Light Fading Tests
Abstract:The present ink jet technology permits to replace the traditional imaging colour technology for which image permanence is of crucial importance. Several test methods and standards have been developed to judge image permanence on accelerated ways for indoor as well as for outdoor applications. Especially for light stability, these methods are based on the conventional law of timeintegrated illuminance. In this paper we will show that, rather than the light dose, the UV & VIS irradiant exposure energy in combination with the material's action spectrum, image optical density, relative humidity and temperature are the decisive parameters for estimating the life expectancy of printed ink jet media in practical situations.

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.
