Gas resistance is an important element in image permanence. We studied the effects of O3, NO2 and SO2 exposure on several imaging materials, such as inkjet, silver halide and other printing materials and observed the fading of those imaging materials under actual indoor display conditions. We found that a correlation exists between image deterioration in the actual display and the accelerated gas exposure test and identified problems in the mixed-gas tests, including, for example, a rapid reaction between O3 and NO2 under accelerated conditions. We will discuss the effects of this reaction on the estimation of print life.

  • 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.
