    Inkjet Media for laser Application!

    Most customers are aware of the properties of Laser media and inkjet media. Some people still ask the question, can I use an inkjet media on a laser printer

    The answer is mostly No. Let us examine

    In laser printing the powder toner is transferred on the media and the image is fixed by application of heat and pressure.  The temperature can go up to 200 Degree C. The contact time depends on the speed of the machine and hence the skin temperature on the media can be less than this. Therefore the laser media are designed to withstand these conditions.

    Inkjet printing is carried out at room temperature. And hence the media can contain low melting resins which can melt or at least soften at the temperature of a laser printer fuser. This is the reason for not recommending an inkjet media for laser printing. Be cautious, as the fuser assembly is costly to replace and it can create shutdown of machine for long time.

    In case of matte coated inkjet media, the surface is kept porous and may have easily removable powder material. This can also contaminate the media path of the printer

    Now can one use laser media for inkjet? Here also the answer is No. Inkjet require a coating which is either swellable with water or porous to allow water to penetrate inside the top layer. Laser media are not designed in that way.  Hence a laser media cannot give good results on an inkjet printer.

    But we use copier paper for inkjet? Yes for monotone application mostly for text matter it is acceptable. It is common to use maplitho paper based label for text and barcode printing. For colour label using an inkjet printer, one cannot use laser media or even media used for applications like flexo printing or offset printing.

    There are other more technical reasons regarding resolution, colour rendition etc., which are affiliated to the media, both in case of Laser and inkjet printing.

    Use the right media for right application. There are vendors available near to you who can supply you the right media in the right format for any type of label printing.

    Digital label printing has great future; Embrace it now.
