Whiteboard Marker Ink Composition
Price :65.0 $
Whiteboard marker ink composition , also known as dry erase marker ink, typically consists of a combination of several key components that allow it to write smoothly on whiteboard surfaces and be easily erased without leaving residue. The exact composition may vary among different brands and formulations, but the main components typically include:
- The solvent is the liquid base of the ink that allows it to flow smoothly from the marker tip onto the whiteboard surface.
- Common solvents used include water and various types of alcohols, such as isopropyl alcohol (isopropanol) or ethanol. Water-based inks are often preferred for their low odor and environmental friendliness.
- Colorants or Pigments:
- Colorants are the components that give the ink its color. They are suspended or dissolved in the solvent.
- Inks can contain either dyes or pigments. Dyes are soluble colorants, while pigments are finely ground solid particles. Whiteboard marker inks usually contain pigments because they are more opaque and visible on white surfaces.
- Common colors include black, blue, red, green, and sometimes additional colors like purple or orange.
Binder use in Whiteboard marker Ink Composition
- The binder is a polymer or resin that helps the ink adhere to the whiteboard surface and dries quickly.
- Polymeric binders are often used in dry erase markers. These binders ensure that the pigments adhere to the board while allowing the ink to be easily erased without smudging.
- Surfactants, or surface-active agents, are included to improve the flow and spread of the ink on the whiteboard surface.
- They help reduce surface tension, allowing the ink to be evenly distributed when written and easily wiped away during erasure.
- Preservatives are added to prevent the growth of mold, bacteria, or other microorganisms in the ink.
- These additives help prolong the shelf life of the marker and maintain ink quality over time.
- Fragrance (optional):
- Some whiteboard marker inks may include fragrances to mask the odor of the solvent or provide a pleasant scent when writing.
