Paper Compatibility with Pigment Ink Controlled in Penetration and Viscosity
Abstract:Recently, the demand of Inkjet printers is remarkably increasing for office use. High-speed printing on plain papers, however, have been producing unsatisfactory image quality in terms of feathering, optical density, print through and so forth. On the other hand, double-sided printing by inkjet printers require long drying time so that the practical use has been limited.
As an efficient inkjet printer for practical office use, the performance of high-speed printing and double-sided printing quality have to be improved.
Then, we made quick-drying and restrained feathering ink by changing pigment content and solvent composition. We compared and examined print characteristics among samples with different surface tension and viscosity.
As a result, we developed ink with high plain paper compatibility for inkjet printers.

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.
