Understanding Aqueous Inkjet Formulation

Terence Kenneth – Sep 13, 2017

Aqueous Inkjet InksThere is a growing evolution in the development of aqueous inks, because the results we are seeing are giving us cause for encouragement to formulate high performance inks.

Formulation of aqueous inkjet inks requires a careful balance of raw materials to satisfy a variety of performance parameters. Also, the selection of appropriate colorants, humectants, binders, etc. has a significant role in ensuring better lightfastness and stabilization when used in outdoor displays.

This article will help you understand the composition of aqueous inkjet inks for 3 major sectors of the printing market - Desktop printing, banners and textile, along with some notable aspects affecting ink performance.

Hello Jorge, Thanks for your question. In these examples the polymers would be anionic in nature. Cationic polymers would function in an acidic pH range, in which case you would have to change many of the other components of the formulation in order to have compatibility.

In regards to the polymers, would they be using anionic or cationic versions?
