Indoor Pollutant Gas Concentration and the Effect on Image Stability
Abstract:Image stability of unprotected prints is affected by pollutant gases in the atmosphere indoors. It is important to know the standard concentration of indoor pollutant gases, especially for the estimation of life expectancy of displayed images. Based on our measurements of indoor gas concentrations using passive samplers at various places for two years, we obtained proper data enabling us to determine the concentrations which have to be taken into account. At the same time, we displayed several kinds of unprotected prints and measured the concentration of pollutant gases at their sites. Then we analyzed the effects of these real pollutant gases on the stability of the displayed images. In this way, we were able to get a good correlation between the actual image deterioration of inkjet prints and their exposure to ozone or other gas at various indoor places.

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.
