The present abstract reports briefly about the continuously increasing demand for printing and marking systems and the growing shift to non-impact processes and inkjet printing in particular and the role nanoparticles and polymer nanoparticle composites that could address or provide more solutions toward the development of media coatings for application to inkjet imaging, the product development of specialty inkjet papers and specialty inkjet media.
Probably more than ever before, today’s emerging markets and market competition are dominated or driven by economic and product quality aspects and the role nanotechnology/nanoparticles could potentially play in addressing the issues. For coated papers or specialty inkjet media this means that inexpensive raw materials of the coatings have to be selected at the highest possible rates of production and at the same time deliver the desired product performance objectives or the product quality.
One particular application the current abstract of the ensuing paper presentation envisages a novel idea of polymer nanocomposite coatings for photographic quality specialty inkjet paper and other potential inkjet media product development. This nanotechnology application potentially creates a niche in the multibillion dollar world wide inkjet media product market (See the attached Inkjet Media Market Research Graph).
