Within the last years gelatine has become, among the usage in classical Photographic materials, also a very important component for glossy Inkjet media. This can be deduced to the combination of gelatine properties like high light /ozone stability, high gloss of the surface, high color densities of the printouts and reasonable dry times.

Besides these classical quality parameters for glossy Inkjet media, which were examined and presented in detail for different gelatine types in the past, also other gelatine properties are crucial with respect to the usage in Inkjet coatings.

The knowledge of differences in swelling capacities and kinetics, surface tensions and the rheological behavior of gelatine solutions is also important for the production of Inkjet media and were studied in detail for different gelatine types.

In the present paper the results of these measurements for different gelatine types will be shown and compared.

From the results it can be concluded that these properties, in contradiction to the above mentioned quality parameters (light stability etc.) are different for the investigated gelatine types. This could lead to an optimized usage of gelatine in the production of Inkjet materials.

  • For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
