Aging Properties of Non-Impact Prints : Influence of the Paper Properties
Abstract:With the large and rapid development of digital printing, arose the problem of aging properties of the corresponding printed materials, such as : light fastness, moisture and heat resistance.
In the present work, a special emphasis is put on the role played by the nature of the paper itself in these fastness characteristics.
Four selected ink-jet papers were analyzed : chemical composition of the surface, permanence properties. Then, ink-jet prints on these papers were analyzed after accelerated aging. The experimental parameters were time of exposure to UV-light, humidity and temperature.
The fastness properties were evaluated in terms of color differences, but also by microscopy observations and spectroscopic analyses.
The results obtained showed, among other things, the significant influence of the paper properties on the global aging performances of the prints.

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.
