Stacking Behavior of Carbon Black on Cellulose Surface
Abstract:Recently, pigmented inks became popular for personal and office printers. They have advantages in waterfastness and lightfastness, but they have limitations on rub resistance. Therefore, new inks have been required to overcome this problem.
Firstly, we investigate effects of additive in ink formulation. Secondly, pigments of hydrophobic surface are introduced. Finally, two pigments having different surface are applied for the optimum condition of additives for improving rub resistance, while maintaining optimum optical density.
As the result, we found that the hydrophobic pigments increased the rub resistance, moreover, preserving optimum optical density. The result of this study will be valuable for overcoming the weak point of pigment based inks.

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.
