  • Patent number: 10640663
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a ceramic printing ink composition having antibacterial function, and more particularly to a ceramic printing ink composition which is prepared by mixing deionized water, propylene glycol, propylene glycol methyl ether acetate (PMA) solvent, propylene glycol methyl ether (PM) solvent, isopropyl alcohol (IPA), a dispersing agent, a pigment. In a process of printing a pattern using the ceramic printing ink composition, the pattern is printed between or on ceramic coating layers by pad, screen or stamp printing. More specifically, ceramic coating (sol-gel) layers (1-coat, 2-coat, 3-coat, etc.) are formed and set-to-touch, after which the ceramic printing ink composition is coated on the coating layer and heated and cured simultaneously with the coating layers. Thus, bonding and adhesive strength of the ceramic printing ink composition is enhanced to enable printing to be more stably and easily performed on the ceramic coating layer.

    Abstract: A non-biological simulant liquid that includes about 30 to about 95 parts by weight of a polymer dispersion or a wax emulsion or dispersion, about 5 to about 70 parts by weight of a rheology modifying agent, and a pigment or a pigment combination. The non-biological simulant has a viscosity that is shear-dependent, such that the viscosity is from about 30 cP to about 300 cP at a shear rate from 0 s?1 to about 10 s?1, and such that the viscosity decreases when the shear rate increases. The pigment or pigment combination imbues the non-biological simulant with a color that approximates that of human or animal arterial or venous blood.
