Several globally known food and beverage outlets such as Starbucks and McDonalds prefer disposable hot cups & lids made up of paper for serving beverages due to high printability
and wide economic availability.
The film is available for both thermal and wet lamination in 32 and 20 microns, respectively, and offers excellent printability
with offset, UV offset, screen, UV inkjet and laser printing.
The second is a filament with a better strength than existing polyaryletherketone (PAEK) materials and better printability
for fused filament fabrication processes (FFS/FDM).
The study also focuses on riboflavin cross-linking and pH before, during and after gelation and directly correlated these findings to printability

Specific properties, like gas barrier, puncture resistance, printability
, sealability and more, are controlled by choice of the layers used to construct a barrier film.
While traditionally acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS) resin has been used in FDM printers for industrial applications, personal desktop printers started with ABS but gradually shifted to PLA (polylactic acid) due to its green reputation, bio-compostability, and pleasant smell, as well as its low shrinkage and good printability
. However, PLA-based materials used in FDM printers are far from perfect.
The products were developed using an original and proprietary particle-free formulation that is claimed to lead to more cost-effective and trouble-free processing; more durable traces that withstand bending and flexing; adherence to the full range of substrates; good conductivity; excellent printability
; and improved sustainability due to its water-based composition.
IGT Testing Systems has released a new version of the IGT F1 printability
tester for flexo inks.
Additional features include: advanced temperature monitoring, fully automated operation, data transfer and printability
and calibration capability.
TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian researchers used nanoclay and calcium carbonate particles to improve surface properties of paper, including smoothness and printability
, as well as optical properties of printing papers.
