Simple pore-volume measurements are not sufficient to fully understand the absorption of inkjet inks into microporous inkjet media, especially as manifested in print artifacts such as ink coalescence, ink bleed and ink drying time. In this paper, we will investigate the influence of other pore characteristics such as pore size and distribution on the aforementioned print attributes, using porous silica pigments, both commercial and under development. This paper will also look at the influence of coat-weight in overcoming bleed and coalescence and its implications for microporous coating design.

  • 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.
