Technically Speaking

Abstract:
The print industry has long benefitted from the application of clever minds to fundamental material science.

Understanding the chemistry and fluid mechanics of ink has enabled high-speed printing onto lightweight papers and novel substrates. Developments will broaden the range of materials that can be printed, extending the range of printed products. One of the technology wildcards is the adoption of nanotechnology, manipulating material at the scale of individual atoms and molecules. According to the US National Science Foundation, nano-engineering applications will become a $1 trillion market within 20 years, and this has implications for the print sector.
