Kinetics of Wetting by Drops: Theory and Implications to Inkjet Printing
Abstract:The kinetics of spreading of inkjet drops on substrates is a key factor in determining the rate of printing and its quality. The mechanisms and fundamental aspects of spreading on non-absorbing substrates and in paper are presented. Semiempirical correlations are shown to be useful in describing the kinetics. Implications to studying inkjet formulations are demonstrated.

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.
