Effect of Resin/Binders on Lightfastness of Colorants in Inkjet Inks
  DOI :  10.2352/ISSN.2169-4451.1999.15.1.art00025_1  Published OnlineJanuary 1999

Recent advances in inkjet technology has materialized large format printing in various outdoor and indoor applications. Heavy emphasis has been placed on the precise matching of print media and inks to maximize lightfastness of the colorants used. However, little attention has been paid to depict the use of resin to provide protection against ultra-violet light. This paper describes our effort in identifying useful resins that can provide some ultra-violet light protection. The philosophy of choosing the right resin will be discussed. Examples of using such resins to enhance lightfastness of some dyes or pigments will also be given.
