The investigation of the dynamic viscoelastic functions of printing inks.

Part II: Audio and ultrasonic frequencies

The dynamic viscoelastic properties are reported for a number of printing inks and of commercial resins in the frequency range 3 Hz and 85 kHz and the temperature range 0° and 50°C. They are compared with the properties of some polymer solutions reported in the literature; notably, over a limited frequency range, they fit theZimm equation.


Polymer Polymer Solution Viscoelastic Property Limited Frequency Viscoelastic Function 


Das dynamisch-viskoelastische Verhalten einiger Druckerei-Tinten und handelsüblicher Harze wurde in den Bereichen 3 Hz – 85 kHz, 0–50°C untersucht und mit dem in der Fachliteratur für einige Polymerlösungen beschriebenen Verhalten verglichen.Zimms Gleichung erwies sich in einem beschränkten Frequenzintervall als gut anwendbar.
