New Raw Materials for UV Inkjet Inks
Abstract:UV-curable inkjet printing is a new technology that is expected to grow significantly in the next few years. The extremely low ink viscosities required for this application entail extensive modification of the conventional formulation equilibrium between oligomers, monomers, and photoinitiators. The impact in terms of curing efficiency then has to be balanced by modifying combinations of photoinitiators in this new binder environment. Pigment selection will be driven by more demanding requirements in terms of resistance to flocculation and gelling. This paper describes the influence of optimized additive and pigment selection on UV inkjet 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.
