Silica Properties for Matte-Coated Media for Pigment Based Inks
Abstract:Pigment-based inks are widely used in applications where long-term stability is of great importance. Choosing the ink-jet ink type is only one step in creating the optimal ink-jet printed product. The media must work synergistically with the ink and printer to obtain the optimum printed product. Formulators of the media must choose the proper materials for the ink receptive coatings to ensure outstanding performance. Silicas are one of the top-performing materials used by formulators to achieve quick dry times and excellent print quality. This paper examines the influence of silica properties on the performance of media printed by pigment based ink jet inks.

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.
