Abstract

The formation of images on polymer films such as MYLAR* in an ink jet printer environment should permit the easy removal of the ink from the film, for example, by either a wet or dry rub. Moreover, it is helpful if the ink may be removed from the film as, for example, by a tacky adhesive film such as cellophane tape, allowing character-by-character correction of the characters on, for example, a polymer film display. A typical formulation of such an ink would be as follows: Pigment 5% Acrylic Resin 6% Surfactant 5% Water 84%
