A New UV Curable Inkjet Ink
Abstract:The technology of inkjet printing is used in various applications, accomplishing evolution every day, with the trend toward on-demand printing and small lot printing. In particular, the markets of UV curable inkjet have shown growth in various applications, mainly in Europe and North America, because they can be used with nonabsorbent substrates such as plastic films and they fix quickly.The main polymerization mechanisms of UV curable inkjet are free radical polymerization. Because acrylate monomer has abundant raw materials, it can reduce a cost. However the photoinitiators and acrylate monomers in free radical inks can cause strong skin irritation and skin sensitization.We developed a new UV curable inkjet ink with low cost. The newly developed inkjet ink uses a free radical polymerization along with superior safety raw materials. The new ink has good curing properties with good adhesion for plastic films and superior safety.

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.
