Automatic Stability Analysis for Inkjet Inks
Abstract:Stability is a key issue for the formulator developing new inkjet ink formulations using pigments. Sedimentation can take place in such systems due to the difference of density of the pigment particles compared to the continuous phase. This phenomenon cannot be eliminated via viscosity increase due to technical constraints in the cartridge. Aggregation can also arise leading to packing of the sediment. All these phenomena can be monitored and quantified using the Turbiscan® technology. Analyses are done on the real product, without dilution and can be accelerated through temperature increase and automated with an ageing station.

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.
