A latex when subjected to shear can exhibit Newtonian or a non-Newtonian flow and a yield stress depending on inter-particle forces. Under dynamic deformation, elastic modulus shows a plateau as the shearing frequency is decreased. Acrylic latex was made under varying processing conditions, which resulted in differences in yield stress, elastic modulus and non-Newtonian behavior. Coalescence and fusion results from interplay of inter particle forces (van der Waals, electrostatic and stearic forces) which are opposedby mechanical forces (hydrodynamic and Brownian) forces. Static and high frequency shear modulus are particle and concentration dependent. Experiments on latex colloids under dynamic oscillation are found to be consistent with the models.

  • 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.
