Stability of Ink Jet Prints to Gas Fading – New Developments
Abstract:Since the quality of ink jet prints, especially in the photographic sector has reached a high level, the gas fading of dyes has become an important issue. Up to now, a standardized test method for gas fading has not existed.
Since it is believed that ozone has the most impact on gas fading phenomena, a testing system was developed which studies the effect of ozone exposure on ink jet prints.
Humidity plays a significant role in the fading effects of ozone. Because of this, it is very important to guarantee a constant humidity level during testing.
This contribution will describe state-of-the-art ozone testing, as well as rank the performance of several dyes of differing chemical structures. Some explanations of the mechanism of color fading will be discussed.

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.
