Ink-jet printing technology is very attractive due to its capability of direct and fine printing onto various objects. Recent studies have been focused on the expansion of the ink-jet printing application from general consumer and design company use to various industrial fields, ranging from prototype production to parts manufacturing. Especially, the use of ink-jet printing technology for ceramic products has many advantages such as fast process, high efficiency, low cost and customized manufacturing. Here, we report the formulation and characterization of ceramic ink for digital ink-jet printing. For the application of digital printing process, ink with highly dispersed inorganic particles was formulated and the rheological properties were precisely optimized to achieve a good jetting behavior. The correlation between various synthetic conditions and the printing behavior of ceramic ink were investigated in detail.
