Influence of Dry Time on Ozone Reciprocity Failure
Abstract:Investigation into ozone testing has shown that print samples may be subject to ozone reciprocity failure. Many print samples in accelerated ozone testing fade faster at lower ozone concentrations in comparison to fade rates in tests run at higher concentrations to the same cumulative ozone exposures. In contrast to this trend, samples often faded more slowly in ambient air compared to the accelerated tests. Separate research had shown that ozone test results are sensitive to dry time, with longer drying typically improving image stability. This has implications for testing in ambient air, because the effective dry time of the print samples is increased due to the length of the test. This study focused on understanding how dry time may interact with ozone reciprocity failure and thereby explain the contrary trends observed.

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.
