Abstract: The practical requirements for textile inkjet-printing systems and factors influencing printing quality are discussed. Ink-jet ink must meet very stringent physical and chemical criteria for compatibility with specific printers' needs and substrates. Such criteria include the viscosity, surface tension and conductivity of the ink, which may technically affect the efficiency and economy of ink-jet printing. The problems of printing quality due to textile substrates also discussed. The quality of the textile substrate associated with fabric pretreatment, fabric hairiness, selvages, warp and weft alignment, fabric alignment, fabric tension and shrinkage during printing should be carefully monitored and controlled during and before the ink-jet printing production. The author suggests further study be conducted to overcome the present limitations in ink-jet printing.
