Novel Black Dye Composition for Inkjet Application
Abstract:There are certain performance requirements placed on dye-based colorants for inkjet ink applications. These include high color strength and bright shade, long-term storage stability, high light and water fastness. Moreover, metal-free derivatives are preferable from an environmental standpoint. Reactive dyes are intrinsically bright, with moderate fastness properties and are less harmful to human. However, this type of dye has poor long-term storage stability, owing to reactive group hydrolysis. This reaction causes dye precipitation, leading to clogging and damaging to print head and shade changes problems.
Dye with carboxyl group have been studied have high water fastness performance [1,2]. In this paper, a series of black dye composition is discussed which navy component contains carboxyl groups and demonstrates improved water and light fastness. These compositions are readily soluble in aqueous solutions shows good printing performance.

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.
