Polymeric Material Performance in the Harsh Environments of Jettable Fluids
Abstract:Jettable fluid delivery and other MEM devices are being exposed to more extreme environments. These packages rely on polymeric materials as structural adhesives for various substrates. These polymer materials also provide protection from mechanical shock; extreme thermal cycles, and can withstand long exposure to harsh chemical environments of the jetting fluids. This paper will compare performance of acrylate, epoxy and silicone adhesives with exposure to the harsh environments of solvent, aqueous, UV and hot melt inks. Physical properties of the adhesives will be monitored before and after exposure to the inks.

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.
