Abstract

Aqueous jet printing inks may contain a silicone glycol copolymer as a humectant and penetrant. Such an ink composition functions without a glycol or glycol ether with improved drying time when printed as a jet ink. The ink has improved stability in the nozzle orifice with a definite decrease in start-up pressure, such as after the ink jet printer is shut down over a period of time.
