New or alternate materials are of interest to formulators striving to gain an edge in inkjet printable media whether it is in performance or cost. Much of media development activity lies in bridging the gap between copy paper and photo quality media. These mid-range products are required to have a competitive edge in performance while maintaining a consumer friendly price. Formulators need a selection of materials in order to actualize media products that accomplish these objectives.

This paper examines the performance of precipitated silicate, precipitated silica, and calcium carbonate in inkjet media. Following well established guidelines in formulating an ink receptive coating, these alternate materials are utilized as the primary pigment in a matte formulation. The resulting coating takes advantage of absorptive properties and particle sizes to create a porous structure useful in inkjet printing.

  • 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.
