Abstract: Abstract Polymer motion in solution and in model printing inks (as measured by NMR spectroscopy) was compared to the “tack” or tensile stress developed in the splitting of thin fluid films. For model inks based on polyisobutene, at constant pigment content, increasing the polymer content caused polymer motion to slow down, and caused the tack to increase. At constant polymer content, increasing the pigment level had much less effect on polymer motion. At 20% pigment content, tack values were little different …
