Analytical Strategies For Ink Formulation
22 July 2015

This application notes explores analytical strategies for the characterization of ink components and quantification of performance characteristics such as jetability and tendency to drip. It also offers guidance on gathering data on engineer formulation stability and how to control manufacture. Inks are complex dispersions or emulsions consisting of dyes or pigments, and other components, suspended within a continuous phase. Formulation is complicated by the fact that the properties of these components impact multiple aspects of ink performance.
