Humidity fastness is an important attribute for inkjet printing materials. The test methods of humidity induced color change and loss of line quality are presently discussed in the ISO/TC42/WG5, where a method using checkerboard pattern as the test target is proposed for the quantitative estimation. In this study, we assessed the effectiveness of the method investigating the correspondence between the checkerboard measurement to the psychophysical evaluation, where we carried out extensive tests with a wide range of commercially available inkjet inks and media. At the same time, we reviewed test conditions, such as temperature, humidity and duration, in order to determine the appropriate standard test method as the ISO.

  • 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.
