English term or phrase: ink holdout
Definition from Robert Horne Group:
Degree to which a paper surface resists penetration of ink. An inked image printed on paper with a high degree of ink holdout will dry by oxidation rather than by absorption. Coated papers tend to exhibit a high degree of ink holdout.

Example sentence(s):
  • All coating consists of two primary ingredients— pigment and adhesive. The pigment provides the sheet with its brightness, ink holdout, smoothness, and gloss; however, pigment is a powder that must be bound to the sheet by an adhesive.
  • They tend to have good ink holdout and minimal dot gain, which can be especially important for recreating sharp, bright printed images, black and white halftones and four color process images.
  • Due to the non-absorbent substrate, ink holdout is maximized. This outstanding feature allows for many graphic effects to be achieved with combinations of opaque white for backing up images, leading to crisp contrasts which are ideal for 4 and 6 color work. Vacumet Corp.

דחיית דיו

Definition from own experience or research:
מידת ההתנגדות לחדירת דיו על ידי פני השטח של נייר כלשהו. הגורם המרכזי להתייבשות ההדפסה על נייר שדחיית הדיו שלו גבוהה הוא חמצון (ולא ספיגה, למשל). לרוב, דחיית הדיו של ניירות מצופים הינה גבוהה.

Example sentence(s):
  • ציפוי דוחה דיו חדש של ראש המדפסת משפר את מיקום הנקודות, אשר משפר את איכות ההדפסה. - 2create
