Abstract

The paper focuses on attachability of printed lines through non contact electrostatic inkjet printing on different substrates using silver based conductive ink. Inktec TEC-IJ-040 conductive ink containing 20%wt of metallic pigments were used. The ink is forced through a small orifice by the help of electrostatic forces. Thus, the droplets formed impact on the substrate. Conductive droplets were printed on different substrates (PET, Inkjet photo paper, Poly (vinylcinnamate), OHP and ITO). Attachability of these droplets have been investigated by using adhesion test after curing at room temperature. For a more detailed investigation of attach ability, interface of the resultant printed lines were studied to analyze the nature of bonding between droplets and substrate. The study of compatibility of different substrates with conductive inks was undertaken. From this study, the life and stability of the conductive line on different substrates were evaluated. This research study will help to improve and optimize the properties of the ink and substrate combination.
