Surface Topography of Coated Papers: From the Evaluation Process to the Quality Improvement

Abstract:

Article Preview

This document analyses the importance of topography characterization of coated papers, using precipitated calcium carbonates as pigments, on print quality evaluation. For topographic characterization, a laser profilometry was used as well as scanning electron microscope and a mechanical profilometry. Print quality for inkjet printing was assessed using mottle, gain, optical density and Gamut Area. Surface energy of coated papers and printing inks was evaluated using OWRK method. The results obtained showed that good correlations between print quality characteristics and surface energy as well as topographic properties can be obtained.
