Diffusion of dyes in ink-jet prints under high humidity is one of the major causes of print degradation. There is, however, no agreed method how to characterize humidity sensitivity and how to predict failure from accelerated test. The study comprises humidity degradation tests of various ink sets on polymer, porous and nanoporous IJ media. It compares different test patterns, pre-conditioning methods, test conditions, and metrics for humidity. From the extended test set, conclusion could be drawn about the media factors that are most important for humidity degradation, namely the type of colorants, the class of media or the ink vehicle. Some recommendations about test patterns and test methods are 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.
