Photocurable inkjet ink for printing on metallic and plastic substrates
Abstract:A novel vinyl ether monomer was employed to improve curing properties of photocurable inkjet ink. A cationic polymerization system was used and the improved curing properties using a novel vinyl ether monomer with cyclic ether compounds were demonstrated. The cured UV ink film showed good adhesion on metallic substrates such as stainless steel, copper, aluminum and also plastic substrates. The stability of pigment dispersion in the ink was improved by controlling zeta-potential of the ink. The higher zeta-potential value resulted in stable particle size of the pigment and viscosity of the ink.

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.
