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 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.
