The methodology of attaching polymers on the surface of pigments using the S.M.A.R.T. (Surface Modification by Attachment via Radical disproportionation Technology) approach will be discussed. This method allows the “one-pot” attachment of polymers in addition to small molecules such as 4-amino benzoic acid. While the small molecules are attached through the intermediacy of 1,3,5-triazine derivatives, many polymers are amenable to incidental attachment in the presence of the free radicals generated in situ from 1,3,5-triazines species.

The benefits of attaching polymers to pigments include the overriding of the pigment-polymeric dispersant compatibility problems that sometimes occur and having greater flexibility in adjusting the pigment properties for inkjet printing.

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.
