Abstract

Jet printing inks are, in general, aqueous-based fluids whose pH is limited not only by ink considerations but also materials compatibility constraints. At pH 10, corrosion of silicon nozzle arrays is a serious problem. Thus, a pH 7-based ink with good print quality properties is very desirable.
