Development of the High Durability Overcoat for Thermal Printhead
In this paper, we describe the new overcoat for the thermal printhead to achieve higher corrosion resistance. It is six times stronger than Kyocera's conventional ones. The overcoat for the thermal printhead has an important function as the prevention of corrosions. Generally, the thicker overcoat is used in order to enhance the corrosion resistance. However, this new overcoat enables to make it 15 percent thinner, despite the enhancement of durability to corrosion. Moreover, this new overcoat increases the energy efficiency and 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.
