Jettability and Stability of Inkjet Inks for Textile Printing
Abstract:To achieve highly reliable and productive inkjet printing systems for textiles, we have developed a black dye dispersed ink that meets the requirements of dye safety, image stability/durability, storage stability, and, most challenging, jettability. Jettability in this ink was achieved by using a wetting agent to strengthen surface energies and decrease the flocculation that causes structural viscosity. The result was Newtonian fluid behavior that allows superior jettability.

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.
