Global Water-Based Ink (Waterborne Ink) Market Outlook 2017-2022


Deerfield Beach, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/12/2017 -- The report that is written on the titled Water-Based Ink (Waterborne Ink) Market 2017 covers all the aspects of the global market study. This report has an estimation about the Water-Based Ink (Waterborne Ink) Market size in terms of value (US$). The report contains the broad segmentation of the market. The report provides the information about the Water-Based Ink (Waterborne Ink) Market and also forecasts its position in the coming years.

To understand the competitive landscape of Water-Based Ink (Waterborne Ink) Market in the global market Porter's Five Forces model has been implemented in order to analyze the data that is gathered. The study encompasses various concepts such as its popularity , the segmentation , the factors that are contributing towards the market growth and the restraining factors that are hampering the growth.

Water-based ink utilizes either dyes or pigments in a suspension with water as the solvent. The evaporation of the water is necessary to set or cure the ink. This curing can take place either at room temperature or using a forced-air dryer depending upon the specific water-based ink used and the speed or volume of production. Water-based inks are defined as those that utilize water as the main solvent. That does not mean, however that water is the only solvent. It is significant to note that many water base inks contain ?co-solvents? which may even be petroleum based solvents. The reason these co-solvents are used varies, but one of the key reasons is to decrease the time and heat necessary to cure the ink film on the fabric.

Water-based inks are a good choice when a ?soft hand? is desirable. A soft hand is the condition where the ink film cannot easily be felt with the hand when passed across the surface of the fabric. This affect is often used as an argument for why water-based is preferable to plastisol as plastisol has more of a hand than water-based.

Water-based ink also has the advantage of being an excellent ink system for high speed roll-to-roll yardage printing. Such printing is done on large sophisticated equipment that has very large drying (curing) capacity.

Water-based ink also is a good choice where ink penetration is desirable, such as in towel printing. Towels have a high nap fabric that must be printed in a manner where the ink penetrates or wicks through to the base fabric for adequate coverage.

Water based inks that are designed to wick into the fabric are excellent for this application. Ink wicking is not a desirable affect in most other fabric printing as it will destroy the design and registration of multiple colors.

Water-based ink is much more difficult to cure than plastisol. A shop that is interested in printing water-based ink must have the drying capacity to remove the water. The dryers used for water-based printing tend to be larger than those needed for plastisol. In plastisol printing, the ink film must only reach the cure temperature for a brief moment. With water-based ink, the temperature must be reached and then held until all of the solvent (water) is removed. There are water-based inks that will air dry but they are usually only acceptable for craft level printing as the room required for curing greatly reduces productivity.

Many water-based inks can also be more quickly cured with the addition of a catalyst that will assist the heat in the curing of the ink by continuing the cure even if all of the water is not removed in the dryer. The disadvantage of a catalyst is that once it is added to a water-based ink, it creates a time limit or ?pot life? where the ink must be all used in a certain time or be discarded. Most catalyzed water-based ink pot life?s are between four and twelve hours. Since water-based inks contain water as an evaporative solvent, care must be taken to prevent the ink from drying in the screen. If water-based ink is left in open mesh for even a short period of time, it can clog the mesh and ruin the screen.
