Metal oxides like titanium, alumina and silica are key ingredients of dry based electrophotographic toners and ink jet paper coatings. Solid state parameters, like crystal structure, particle size, morphology and porosity favor their use in these applications. However, a variety of further requirements like tribochargeability, and stability, particle surface charge, in terms of powder toner applications and ink jet coatings, have to be fulfilled. As a consequence new surface chemistries of the metal oxides are required.

This presentation will focus on how metal oxides can be tailored for NIP applications. Special focus is given to synthetic amorphous silicas (SAS). The impact of selected physical-chemical features like particle size (primary, aggregate, agglomerate), surface chemistry (silylation), porosity (e.g. mesoporous for fumed metal oxides), particle surface charge (e.g. anionic or cationic), and their correlation to relevant application properties, for powder toners, like tribocharge and stability, flow, transfer efficiency, and cleaning, and for ink jet coatings, like adsorption and absorption capacity, gloss, waterfastness, and bleeding is discussed.

Newer technologies like chemically prepared toner (CPT) or photoglossy papers and their impact on metal oxides for NIP are considered.

In addition, EH&S aspects of SAS and an update on chemical legislation will be covered.

  • 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.
