Contribution of Spectroscopic Techniques to the Analysis of Permanence Properties of Ink-Jet Printed Materials
Abstract:The demand for image permanence properties has increased with the development of ink-jet applications. Depending on the ink composition, the nature of the colorants (pigments or dyes) and the media properties, very different results can be obtained. The effect of the ageing experiments are frequently assessed in terms of color differences (ΔE) and gloss variations.
The objective of this paper was to evaluate, in addition to these measurements, other techniques of analyses, such as UV-visible, IR and Raman spectroscopies.
Two different ink-jet papers have been tested with two ink-jet inks (pigment- and dye-based inks) before and after UV-light expositions.
Not only the analytical techniques used allowed to evaluate the extent of the permanence properties of the samples, but they also made possible to interpret with a better accuracy the physico-chemical origin and the mechanism of the possible degradation.

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.
