  • Patent number: 11987714
    Abstract: A usual ink composition can be expected to improve ink viscosity to a certain degree, but when used for a glycol ether-based ink recently required, an increase in viscosity in preparing the ink cannot be suppressed. In addition, there is unknown a copper phthalocyanine pigment composition which can satisfy both such an improvement in ink viscosity and resolubility as printability which is important for the glycol ether-based ink. In this situation, a problem to be solved by the present invention is to provide a copper phthalocyanine pigment composition having low viscosity and excellent resolubility in a glycol ether-based ink. It was found that when a copper phthalocyanine pigment is combined with a specified copper phthalocyanine acid derivative, a pigment composition having significantly low viscosity when formed into a glycol ether-based ink, and good familiarity with the ink can be produced, leading to the achievement of the present invention.

  • Patent number: 9714357
    Abstract: An object is to provide phthalocyanine pigment compositions that have good transparency, gloss, and suitability in the initial viscosity after production as well as outstanding storage stability when used in liquid ink. A copper phthalocyanine pigment composition containing copper phthalocyanine, a rosin compound, copper phthalocyanine sulfonic acid or its salt, and an aliphatic amine with the calcium content of the pigment composition being 200 ppm or less has good transparency, gloss, and suitability in the initial viscosity after production as well as outstanding storage stability when used in liquid ink.
