Pigment based inkjet inks have assumed a leading market position in desktop as well as wide-format inkjet printing since they provide outstanding light-and water-fastness. The technical requirements on pigmented inkjet inks are tremendously increased by faster printing speed and modern application fields such as commercial inkjet printing. The dispersibility of pigments is one of the key performances to enable the development of such high quality pigmented inkjet inks with tailored particle size distribution and highest optical densities. This technical study focuses on a series of surface oxidized carbon black pigments based on the same carbon black source. Prepared dispersions under the same conditions based on these grades show the strong influences of surface oxidation on carbon black pigments on the dispersibility and the different demand on dispersing additives. Finally, optical densities and long term stability testing of final inkjet inks based on these surface oxidized carbon black pigments were evaluated. The test study shows the advantage of surface oxidized carbon black pigments in regard to improved dispersibility, more economical dispersing processes and higher optical densities for aqueous inkjet ink systems.

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.
