Influence of Temperature in Xenon Testing
Abstract:The digital print industry is working toward the goal of adopting improved test methods for image permanence. As part of this effort, the new test methods are being designed to isolate the environmental variables that impact image permanence. The benefits of this approach are that it simplifies the test methods and test equipment while promoting test results that can be reproduced at other test laboratories. To understand which variables to isolate for a given test method, it is necessary to investigate a broad range of conditions which may affect the test results. This study focused on the impact of changing the temperature in Xenon testing while holding all other conditions constant. It was found that higher temperatures significantly increased the sample fade rate and that this test parameter will need to be tightly controlled. This research is part of ongoing work contributing to the development of standardized test methods for image permanence.

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.
