Several model ink jet coatings having a broad range of hydrophilicity were imaged on three printers. The gloss of these images was independent of the hydrophilicity of the ink jet coating. However, when the most hydrophobic and hydrophilic systems were coated on top of each other the gloss of printed image areas was dependent on the hydrophobicity of top layer. In experiments having a hydrophilic layer on the top, the gloss of imaged areas was independent of ink load and the ratio between both ink jet coating layers. When a hydrophobic layer was coated on the top hydrophilic layer, drop of 60 points in gloss was observed at a 400% ink load. The gloss reduction can be dependent on a ratio between both ink jet coating layers and ink load. Correlations were found between water absorption, gloss reduction and content of the most hydrophobic component in the coatings. It was shown that the difference in the degree of absorption between the two ink jet coating layers has an effect on the gloss of printed areas.

More about this publication?
  • The Journal of Imaging Science and Technology (JIST) is dedicated to the advancement of imaging science knowledge, the practical applications of such knowledge, and how imaging science relates to other fields of study. The pages of this journal are open to reports of new theoretical or experimental results, and to comprehensive reviews. Only original manuscripts that have not been previously published, nor currently submitted for publication elsewhere, should be submitted.

    IS&T's JIST-first publication option allows authors wishing to present their work at conferences, but have a journal citation for their paper, to submit a paper to JIST that follows the same rigorous peer-review vetting and publication process as traditional JIST articles, but with the benefit of a condensed time-to-publication time frame and guaranteed conference presentation slot.

    Please note: For purposes of its Digital Library content, IS&T defines Open Access as papers that will be downloadable in their entirety for free in perpetuity. Copyright restrictions on papers vary; see individual paper for details.
