Effect of Monomer on Printing Quality of UV-LED Inkjet Ink
Abstract:UV-LED inkjet ink has fast response, energy efficient, high environmental protection and other advantages, and it is a highly promising environmentally friendly ink. Monomer is an important component of UV-LED inkjet ink, it has a certain impact on performance of the ink. In order to investigate the effects of monomer on the printing quality of UV-LED inkjet ink, seven kinds of monomers were chosen to prepare ink samples, and dispersion, viscosity and surface tension of each ink was tested. Then ink jet printer was used to print each ink, and the line width, density, fuzziness, roughness and contrast of printing sheets were tested to analyze the effect of monomer on ink printing quality. The results show that inks prepared by different monomers have different performance and it has obvious impacts on the printing quality.

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.
