Charge controlling capability of ultra-thin shell layers formed on a spherical PMMA core particle surface
Abstract:Core-shell (C-S) particles having ultra-thin shell layers on the core particle surface are prepared with the coacervation process and their surface structure or tribo-charging characteristics are investigated. Spherical, positively chargeable polymethyl-methacrylate (PMMA) particles having a particle size of approximately 10 μm are used as the core particles. Negatively or positively chargeable ultra-fine particles having a particle size of 3 to 100 nm are used as the shell particles. Through the coacervation process in water, the shell particles are precipitated onto the core particle surface to yield C-S particles. From SEM observation and the blow-off tribo-charge measurements of the CS particles, it is confirmed that (1) an ultra-thin single shell layer having a thickness of less than 20 nm and completely covering the underlying core surface is obtained, (2) the charging characteristics of the C-S particles are governed by the composition of the ultra-thin layer, (3) double shell C-S particles, in which a second ultra-thin shell layer is coated over the single shell C-S particles, are also obtained, (4) the charging characteristics of the double shell C-S particles are governed by the composition of the second ultra-thin shell layer.

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.
