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 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.
