Comparison of Different Methods for Estimating the Sensitivity of Inkjet Images to Gas Fading
Abstract:This study compares the fading of inkjet prints tested in environmental chambers using either an electrostatic discharge or ultraviolet radiation to produce ozone. Our results indicate that over the range of 0.1 to 5.0 ppm ozone in air, very similar fading characteristics are obtained at 50% RH with the microporous and swellable polymer based inkjet papers tested, whether ozone is produced with an electric discharge or with a UV radiation source. Reciprocity between ozone concentration and time is observed for the fading of dye-based inkjet images printed on microporous papers. In addition, results from the accelerated ozone fading tests are compared with fading under “real world” ambient indoor air conditions.

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.
