New D2T2 Photo Printing Material: Advanced Techniques and Excellent Properties
Abstract:We have developed a new thermal photo printing paper with improved image quality and handling properties, successfully reducing environmental pollution caused during its production processes. The paper uses a laminated base paper having the same level of enhanced whiteness as film photo print paper. The multiple layers containing a heat insulation layer are coated on this paper by the application of the aqueous dispersion system developed by FUJIFILM. Compared with conventional thermal photo paper, the new paper has a better image quality (5% increase in whiteness and 20% in gloss). The new printing paper production method contributed to increasing the moisture content in the new paper, leading to reducing the surface resistance to approximately one-thousand that of previous types of printing paper and thus improving the antistatic property. This property can prevent the freshly printed sheets of thermal photo paper from sticking together, allowing for a much easier handling. The application of our coating technology based on the aqueous dispersion system has eliminated the need for using organic solvents, thereby reducing environmental pollution caused during paper manufacturing processes.

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.
