Contract nr: QLK5-CT-1999-00929
Project type: RS (Research and Technological Development Project)
Starting date: 01-02-2000
Duration: 36 months

Research topic: 5.3.2. Strategies for the sustainable and multipurpose utilisation of forest resources; the forestry-wood chain

Abstract:
The market share of digital printing, largely based on toner technology, is expected to increase from 5% today to 25% in 2010. The technique will lead to printing locally, on pre-printed or unprinted paper, information produced anywhere in the world. The efficiency of communication depends on the print quality. This toner print quality is linked to the toner transfer from the printing machine to the paper, to the toner adhesion on the paper, and to the paper and toner behaviour on the paper surface. Test methods will be developed to evaluate toner transfer, toner adhesion and toner print quality. Paper surface will be optimised in order to get the targeted print quality. Pre-printing flexo water-based ink and UV offset ink leading to no solvent evaporation will be developed and the surface treatments of papers will be optimised. The parameters of the toner printing machines will be optimised as well as the toner properties. Print conditions will be defined for eco, high-quality, environmentally friendly and low-cost prints.
