This paper reviews the development of the ink for an electrostatic ink jet printer. It discusses the formulation logic, test procedures, failure analyses, and problem resolutions. The variables that influence the jet printing process and print quality are defined, and their relationship to specific formulations is discussed. Also considered are the relationships between formulation variables and failure modes inherent in the ink.
