Printer inks are inks manufactured specifically for printers. The quality of printing depends on the sort of ink, type of paper and also the form of printer used. The quality of ink is reflected in the company's final product.
Tattoo is manufactured out of a mix of dyes or pigments, distilled surfactants, de-ionized water, biocides and fungicides, buffering agents, humectants and resins. These combinations be sure that the ink produced matches the standard specification of OEM ink. Dye or pigment of a particular type and quantity can be used, and the surfactant works well for balancing the paper wetting and surface tension. Resins ensure paper adhesions and humectants minimize evaporation.
Printer inks are generally dye based or pigment based. Dye based inkjet inks are brighter in color and may produce sharp quality printing. They are stable and could be stored for too long durations. Among the drawbacks of dye based inkjet inks is that they are slow in penetrating and often extend to around 10 secs for drying. Because the drying time is long they frequently have a tendency to blur. On the other hand pigment inkjet inks are light, fast, waterproof and fade resistant. Additionally they dry faster compared to the dye based ink and are more suited to color ink because they prevent blurring. They likewise have lower toxicity levels than dye-based ink. One of the main goals from the inkjet ink manufacturers is always to develop ink that is durable, fade resistant, and waterproof and possesses a chance to print on any media.
Printer inks needs to be checked for compatibility with the cartridge while purchasing because they are not generic and will just be used in the cartridges they may be manufactured for.
