Effect of additives on Colloidal properties and printing performance of disperse dye blue inks for inkjet printing
Abstract:Disperse dye inks as one of the main colorant materials for polyester fiber in textiles inkjet printing have attracted more and more people's attention. In this paper, the nanoscale disperse dye blue dispersion was prepared, and further the effects of additives on colloidal properties and printing performance of disperse dye blue ink were investigated. Particle size distribution revealed that particles were small and uniformly distributed into aqueous media. Amount of polyols, defoamer and surfactants have significantly influence on colloidal and printing performance of the disperse dye blue ink. The optimal formulation of disperse dye blue ink was obtained with polyol 27 wt%, surfactant 1.0-1.2 wt%, and defoamer 0.25 wt%.

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.
