The first ink was introduced in 1993 and subsequently virtually all ink jet document printers use carbon black ink jet ink for text. Following this effort he turned to new business development of pigmented inks used in industrial, textile and wide format applications. Today he focuses on ink jet media design and manufacturing in China.

Inkjet inks can print on anything since the drops fly through the air to the substrate being printed. The trouble starts when they hit the substrate. Inkjet ink types include water based, strong solvent based, phase change, UV curable, mild solvent based and oil based. To perform on the substrate properly the substrate usually is prepared to receive the ink and give the post printing performance expected. Many ink jet media are coated with coatings needed to absorb the ink or provide a surface for bonding the ink. This class of materials is referred to as Coated or Treated Inkjet Media. The substrate may be paper, plastic, fabric or other type of substrate being printed. New technologies are being introduced including resin containing water based inks as well as water based and solvent based UV curable inks.

Expert has been used as a consultant and expert in these technologies.
