Inkjet photographic prints, especially those printed with dye-based inks on porous media, are subject to rapid dye fading when exposed to ambient levels of ozone. The rate of fade is much slower with dye-based inks on swellable media and, in general, with pigment-based inks. As part of an ongoing effort to establish a standardized test method to accelerate the rate of ozone-induced fade, we have been exploring the use of high concentrations of ozone under controlled conditions. A key assumption, necessary to estimate the corresponding rate of fade at much lower, ambient levels of ozone, is that there is a reciprocal relationship between ozone concentration and time of exposure. In this presentation, we will provide an update on our previous report of various ink-media combinations with respect to ozone reciprocity effects.

  • 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.
