A New Water-based Inkjet Ink for Plain Paper Printing
Abstract:Offices have recently seen an increase of inkjet printing on plain paper. Two types of ink have been used for this printing: water-based ink and oil-based ink. However, there is a trade-off between the two. Although water-based ink offers sharp images, it also results in significant curling of plain paper after printing. Conversely, although oil-based ink allows curl to be suppressed, it results in poor image quality with low density. By carefully controlling the ink's absorption into and penetration of plain paper, we developed a new ink that achieves both image quality and curl suppression.

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.
