Nano-Hybrid Technology – A New Tool for Improving Print Quality
Abstract: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.

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.
