Global Printing Inks Market Grows with Water-based Inks

Posted on Feb 27, 2015

Inks use a variety of pigments or dyes that give them their unique colors. Pigments are actually solid by themselves. They are opaque in nature and the inks that use them are basically suspensions of pigments that will provide them with the required color. Only 5% to 30% of the ink volume is actually pigment. On the other hand, dyes are a lot stronger in color density. The major disadvantage with dyes is that they are dissolved as liquids, due to which they have a tendency to seep into the paper. This reduces the efficiency of the ink and also invites the chances of causing the ink to bleed onto the other side of the paper. One of the innovative ways manufacturers have dealt with this situation is to add a solvent to the mixture that allows it to dry the second it is exposed to air. Other methods include blowing air on the ink to dry it out quicker.

Network Security Market - Serving to Make the Digital World a Safer Place
