The main objective of the IDILYUM project is to study, from a basic and fundamental perspective in a real environment, the behaviour of ceramic inkjet inks in terms of printability and droplet formation, using an industrial head, such as those being used on surfaces such as ceramics, glass, tableware and sanitary ware.
To this end, ceramic inkjet inks based on crystalline raw materials, raw materials of vitreous nature, advanced ceramics and combinations of these will be formulated and developed, analysing in detail the influence of their physicochemical properties measured under operating conditions, on the ease of ejection and behaviour in flight of the droplets generated during the printing stage.
Thanks to this study, it will be possible to know, predict, simulate and model the behaviour experienced by the new developments, in order to offer new and innovative tools useful for designing and formulating inkjet inks, with guarantees of being able to be used in digital technology to adapt to industrial working conditions (line speed, firing frequencies, print resolution, curvatures and reliefs, etc.).
