What Kind of Inkjet Ink is Suitable For Inkjet Printers

Dec 01 , 2020


There was a vivid analogy that the nozzle is the head of the inkjet printer, and the inkjet ink is the blood of the Inkjet Printer. This shows the important position of inkjet ink in inkjet printers. The print head determines the fineness of the printed picture, and the ink determines the color reproduction effect of the printed picture. Therefore, the quality and performance of inkjet ink are closely related to the quality of the printed image, and also greatly affect the reliability and use effect of the printing system.


With the advancement of inkjet printing technology, the price of No Clog Nozzle Sublimation Ink of inkjet printer is very expensive, and the price of original ink is not much lower than buying a new printer. The reason is firstly the distribution strategy of printer manufacturers, reducing printer prices to occupy the market, and earning high profits from inkjet ink sales; on the other hand, the high-tech content of original inks, especially high-end ink products, is also caused by it. Reasons for high costs.

There are many types of inkjet printers. In terms of printing principle, there are two types of inkjet printers: continuous and drop-on-demand. Their inkjet principles are very different, so the inkjet inks used are also very different. The main advantage of continuous inkjet technology is that it can form high-speed inkjet particles, which is suitable for high-speed printing. Its disadvantage is that it must have a continuous ink pressure mechanism, and it is necessary to set up a recycling and filtering device for ink droplets that are not involved in recording. In order to charge the ink droplets, soluble inorganic salts are often added to the ink formulation to make the ink have a certain degree of conductivity. On-demand inkjet color inkjet inks can be divided into micro piezoelectric inks and bubble inks according to the printing principle, which are the main body of inkjet inks at present.


General requirements for inkjet ink performance include:


(1) Sprayability: It is expressed in two main indicators, namely the viscosity and surface tension of the ink; conductivity is also required for continuous inkjet printer ink.


(2) Reliability: No blocking of the nozzle; compatibility between inkjet ink components and between inkjet ink and inkjet head components; storage-stable type.


(3) Image quality: good printing quality (Ink dot permeability, high optical density, clear printing edges); fast fixation on different printing media; water resistance; light resistance; anti-friction.


(4) Safety: non-toxic; non-flammable; low odor.
