The aggregates for two types of fumed silica are compared with each other and with colloidal silica similar to one used as a spacer additive for toner. These examples of fumed silica differ in that one is made up of very large (sub-micron) sized primary particles with a low degree of aggregation while the second fumed silica example has a much higher, balanced, degree of aggregation. The aggregates of both forms of fumed silica disperse on a toner surface to result in effective particle diameters larger than the colloidal silica particle. Also, because of their fractal morphology, these dispersed aggregates are more likely to remain fixed on the toner surface as compared to the colloidalbased additives.

  • 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.
