A Study of Yellow Solvent Dyes in Coated Paper Ink-Jet Ink System and Printing Test
Because of clear image, bright color, high saturation of the color printing on coated paper, the ink-jet printing on coated paper catches more and more people’s eyes. In order to solve the problem of the ink-jet ink (cyan, magenta, yellow and black) on coated paper already developed out, whose yellow ink slants red and gloomy, different dyes are used to produce ink-jet ink. The inks were printed on the R-230 ink-jet printer on matt coated paper. The chromatic aberration is obtained on the basis of the colorimetric values in the ISO 12647-2:1996 eqv GB/T 17934.2-1999. It is found that the aberration of the Y79 is lower and its saturation is higher. The ink is filtered with 0.20 μm filter membrane and it can be used on ink-jet printing. The ink was used to print on the coated paper together with the previous cyan, magenta and black ink already developed out. The colorimetric values were measured and chromatic aberration and saturation is computed. The Color gamut graph of original inks and improved inks combination are made and compared to the standard of the ISO 12647-2:1996. It is found that the problems of hue unjust and gloomy color are improved compared to the previous four colors together. The cyan and magenta still stay away from perfect and it should be improved in future.
