Improved Dark Storage Test Method, part 2
Abstract:Continuing research into last year's proposal for a new test method to improve the dark storage test of print images has led to further improvement in the sandwich method. Based on feedback, several additional test materials were investigated, with the most promising candidate being a clear polyester film. This material was most effective in preventing cross contamination between samples and in eliminating the influence of airflow. 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.
