We have recently discovered a novel and easy method for preparing color-changeable Ag films using aqueous solutions of sulfides as coloring agents. In the presence of specific sulfides such as lime sulfur solutions, the color of Ag films, initially sliver, changes to yellow, red, blue and green depending on the preparation conditions such as the dipping time in the solutions and the temperature of the solution. One of the potential candidates is in the application as imaging materials. Assuming the imaging by inkjet devices, we have already investigated the ink receiving nature to Ag films. The focus of this present work is to explore the nature of sulfide solutions which act as inks for changing the color of Ag films in the inkjet system. We found that both the solubility of sulfides in water and the nature of the hydrolyzed constituents of sulfides are important parameters for obtaining successful color-changeable Ag films in this imaging system. For example, K2S solution works well as coloring agent due to its appropriate solubility in water and KSH, one of the hydrolyzed constituents of K2S, play an important role to change the color of Ag films.

  • For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
