An Analysis of how Water-Based Ink Affects the Low Energy Surface Wettability
Water-based ink in low-energy surface wetting more difficult and hinder its application. In order to solve water ink in low-energy on the surface wettability problem, change the kind of cosolvent, kind and content of surfactants prepared ink. They were tested in low-energy CD the surface contact Angle to examine wettability of ink, test the surface tension, ink affecting wettability factors were analyzed. Results show that: in water-based ink add isopropyl alcohol, flow ping agent 432 and substrate wetting agent 245, can better improve its surface wettability in low-energy, and base material wetting agent 245 content about 1.25% wet effect is good.
