The absorption and spreading of aqueous finishing fluids onto textile fiber surfaces
Abstract:The mechanism of ink absorption at the fiber surface, and also the penetration of ink into the fiber structure are key phenomena of textile finishing technology. To obtain high quality finishes, it is important to understand the relative importance of the parameters that define the absorption rate and spreading ratio of droplet shaped fluid elements that impact the textile surface.
A simple model that combines Darcy's Law and harmonic droplet oscillator frequency forms a precursor to further advanced Dissipative Particle Dynamic (DPD) modeling. Experimental data for several combinations of textile and model fluids are presented. The key technical challenges to be addressed and overcome in the near future are discussed.

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.
