Effects of Paper on LEP Digital Print Deinking with Alkaline and Neutral Chemistries
Abstract:Conversion of analog to digital technology is occurring at an ever increasing speed in the commercial printing industry. Digitally printed papers, as a consequence, are becoming a larger proportion of the incoming waste paper stream to the recycling industry. Deinking of digital prints involve deeper understanding of the ink and their interaction with various types of substrates. In this paper, a comparative study of alkaline deinking and neutral deinking of LEP prints with a variety of substrates is presented. The results show that the preferable neutral chemistry is always successful in deinking, while the alkaline chemistry appears to be more complicated.

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.
