UV-inkjet Ink Penetration and Its Effect on Print Quality Formation and Drying
Abstract:The increased usage of UV-inkjet for printing porous fiber based products has created a need to study the interactions between paper coating, ink and process. In this paper we have studied, how coating porosity affects print quality formation and ink curing degree of UV-curable inkjet inks. Results show, that paper requirements for UV-inkjet differ clearly from those, which are usually connected to good inkjet paper. Paper properties have quite a remarkable effect on print gloss and density formation, although the use of pinning lamps reduces this dependency. Ink curing degree depends also on the properties of the paper and interactions between ink and paper.

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.
