High-Temperature Component Interactions in Pigment-Based Thermal Ink Jet Printing Inks
Abstract:Thermal ink jet printing presents some unique challenges to pigment-based inks. The process of superheating and vaporizing an ink at an elevated temperature can severely foul the heater and surrounding surfaces. Understanding the component interactions under these conditions can be beneficial to the design of stable and effective inks. Thermal ink jet devices configured for open pool operation are an especially useful tool to study the physical and chemical processes that occur during the vapor generation phase of the ejection cycle. These devices not only can be used for fundamental ink examination, but also as a predictor of ink performance in full ejectors.

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.
