Ink Characteristics

1. Viscosity. It is a property that prevents the flow of fluids. It is a measure of the ability of fluids to interact with each other and hinder their ability to move relative to each other, that is, the resistance to fluid flow.
2. Thixotropy. Thixotropy refers to the fact that when the ink is stirred by an external force, it is gradually thinned by the stirring action, and the stirring operation stops, and the complex returns to its original consistency.
3. Liquidity. Fluidity means that the ink will flow like a liquid under its own gravity. It is determined by the viscosity, yield value and thixotropy of the ink, and it is also closely related to the temperature.
4. The length of the ink. The length of the ink refers to the extent to which the ink is initially drawn into a filament without breaking. The length of the ink is related to the thixotropy, yield value, and plastic viscosity of the ink.
5. The ink is dry. Ink drying refers to the process of changing the ink from a liquid or paste to a solid film after the ink has adhered to the printed matter. This process is accomplished by changing the edge material in the ink from a liquid or paste to a solid.
