The influence of polymer concentration, going from the dilute through the overlap into the concentrated regime, during drop on demand inkjet printing is investigated for a range of cellulose ester (CE) polymers from visual examination of ligament stretching as a function of applied wave form. The physical behaviour of the polymer fluids in drop formation is indicative of the dominance of viscoelastic effects within the timescale of the process, in preventing ligament break-up at the pinch point… CONTINUE READING
