“Tweaking” the Pigment Color for Advanced Printing Applications
Abstract:The color of organic pigments for commercial printing applications, commonly considered as invariable, can be “tweaked” by adjusting chemical environments surrounding the pigment particles. The extend of color change, though small, is frequently noticeable with a naked eye. This phenomenon is due to subtle interactions between the surface molecules of the pigment and surrounding polar moieties either chemisorbed or vicinal to the pigment surface. Detailed understanding of this effect may allow avoiding undesirable color changes degrading the printed color quality. It may also be used in development of advanced inks for various printing applications.

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.
