Nano-scaled synthetic pigments, which are attached to the surface of an inorganic carrier pigment, are used for the production of a paper with excellent electrophotographic print quality, silk gloss, high brightness and bulk, as well as good toner adhesion. This nano-hybrid technology has the great potential to improve the quality of printing and copy papers by combining the advantageous properties of both nano-scaled and macroscopic materials. In order to address possible health concerns, a new high precision measuring device (Nano Dust Tester – NDT) was developed allowing the precise detection of possible micro- and nanoparticle emissions from paper surfaces. All papers tested with this device showed no emission of nanoparticles, whether nanohybrid technology was employed or not.

More about this publication?
  • 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.
