Beschreibung[en]

The present invention relates to a thermosensitive recording material, and particularly to a thermosensitive recording material having superior image preservability and chemical resistance and having adaptability to inkjet recording.

Background Art

In general, since thermosensitive recording materials are relatively inexpensive, and recording instruments thereof are compact and are free from maintenance, the thermosensitive recording materials are broadly used. In recent years, a sales competition of thermosensitive paper has intensified, and thermosensitive recording materials are required to have higher functions that can be differentiated from conventional functions. Accordingly, the thermosensitive recording materials are extensively studied with respect to color density, image preservability.

Hitherto, 2,2-bis(4-hydroxyphenyl)propane (so-called "bisphenol A") has been widely used as an electron-accepting compound for an electron-donating dye to be used in such thermosensitive recording materials. However, a material that is satisfactory from the viewpoints of sensitivity, background fogging prevention, image preservability, chemical resistance, anti-sticking properties has not yet been obtained.

On the other hand, Japanese Patent Application Publication (JP-B) No. 4-20792 discloses recording materials using an N-substituted sulfamoylphenol or N-substituted sulfamoylnaphthol as the electron-accepting compound and describes that the (pressure-sensitive or thermosensitive) recording materials are improved with respect to image density, image stability, and cost. However, there is room for further improvements in image density and image preservability.

US-A-4585483 discloses a recording material which contains an electron donating colorless dye and an electron accepting compound. The latter compound is an aromatic compound having a substituted or unsubstituted sulfamoyl group and a hydroxyl group as substituents.

JP-2000-247037 is related to a thermo-sensitive recording material comprising at least a thermosensitive recording layer containing an electron-donating colorless dye, an electron-accepting compound represented by a specified formula, and a poly vinyl alcohol having a saponification degree of 88% or less.

Further, in cases where full-color information is recorded on thermosensitive recording materials, recording using inkjet inks is often conducted. When inkjet printing is performed on ordinary thermosensitive recording materials, colors of the inks may not be completely reproduced, and vivid colors do not appear, whereby the resulting colors become dull. It has been noted that when inkjet recording is performed on the thermosensitive recording material described in JP-B No. 4-20792, a problem arises in that the colors are dull and blackish.

Disclosure of Invention

In view of the foregoing problems, the present invention has been made. A first object of the invention is to provide a thermosensitive recording material that is high in color density, less in background fogging and superior in preservability of image portions and chemical resistance of image portions and background portions, and is provided with adaptability to inkjet recording.

According to the invention a thermosensitive recording material is provided which comprises a support having thereon an undercoat layer made of an inorganic pigment and a binder as major components and a thermosensitive color developing layer containing at least an electron-donating colorless dye and an electron-accepting compound, wherein the thermosensitive color developing layer contains 4-hydroxybenzenesulfone anilide as the electron-accepting compound, a surface of the thermosensitive color developing layer is subjected to calendaring processing and a thermosensitive recording suface of the thermosensistive recording material has an Oken smoothness of at least 500 seconds, wherein the Oken smoothness is measured by the method as defined in J. TAPPI No. 5.

Due to the matter that the thermosensitive color developing layer contains 4-hydroxybenzenesulfone anilide as the electron-accepting compound and that the thermosensitive recording surface of the thermosensitive recording material has an Oken smoothness of at least 500 seconds, the first aspect of the invention can provide a thermosensitive recording material that is high in color density, less in background fogging and superior in preservability of image portions, chemical resistance and resistance to printing trouble due to friction between a head and paper, and is provided with adaptability to inkjet recording, as compared with the conventional thermosensitive recording materials.

Best Mode for Carrying Out the Invention <<Thermosensitive recording material>>

The thermosensitive recording material of the present invention is a thermosensitive recording material comprising a support having thereon a thermosensitive color developing layer containing an electron-donating colorless dye and an electron-accepting compound, wherein the thermosensitive color developing layer contains 4-hydroxybenzenesulfone anilide as the electron-accepting compound.

In the first aspect, the thermosensitive recording surface of the thermosensitive recording material has an Oken smoothness of at least 500 seconds. The Oken smoothness is preferably at least 700 seconds.

In order to obtain thermosensitive recording materials having a large smoothness, not only supports having a high smoothness are used as the support as described later, but also the surface of the thermosensitive color developing layer is subjected to calendering processing or the like.

In the thermosensitive recording material according to the first aspect of the invention, 4-hydroxybenzenesulfone anilide is used as the electron-accepting compound, and the thermosensitive recording surface of the thermosensitive recording material has an Oken smoothness of at least 500 seconds. Thus, the resulting thermosensitive recording material is superior in sensitivity, fogging, image preservability, chemical resistance and resistance to printing trouble due to friction between a head and paper, and is provided with adaptability to inkjet recording. When the condition of the Oken smoothness is not met, the resulting thermosensitive recording material is not satisfactory in sensitivity.

Further, in the thermosensitive recording materials according to the invention, in order to prevent corrosion of thermal heads, the total ion concentration of Na+ ions and K+ ions contained therein is preferably 1,500 ppm or less, more preferably 1,000 ppm, and especially preferably 800 ppm.

The ion concentration of Na+ ions and K+ ions is measured by extracting components from the thermosensitive recording material with hot water and subjecting the extract to ionic quantitative analysis by the atomic absorption method to measure the ion masses of Na+ ions and K+ ions. The concentration is expressed in terms of ppm based on the whole mass of the thermosensitive recording material.

Moreover, in the thermosensitive recording material from the viewpoint of prevention of blotting of prints by an inkjet printer, a contact angle of the thermosensitive recording surface to water is preferably at least 20°, and more preferably at least 50°.

The contact angle is measured by an ordinary manner (for example, a dynamic contact angle absorption tester such as DAT1100 (trade name, manufactured by Fibro System ab) when 0.1 seconds has lapsed after dropping distilled water onto the thermosensitive recording surface of the thermosensitive recording material.

In addition, in the thermosensitive recording materials, an image retention rate is preferably at least 65 %. The image retention rate is expressed in terms of a rate of the image density of an image after standing in an atmosphere at 60 °C and at a relative humidity of 20 % for 24 hours to the image density immediately after printing, as measured by a Macbeth reflection densitometer (for example, RD-918). Image retention rate = ( Image density after standing under the foregoing condition ) / Image density immediately after printing × 100

The thermosensitive recording material will be hereunder explained.

<Support>

Conventionally known supports can be used in the invention. Specific examples thereof include paper supports such as wood-free paper, coated paper in which paper is coated with a resin or a pigment, resin-laminated paper, wood-free paper provided with an undercoat layer, synthetic paper, and plastic films. From the viewpoint of thermal head matching characteristic, wood-free paper provided with an undercoat layer is preferable, and wood-free paper provided with an undercoat layer containing an oil-absorbing pigment which undercoat layer is provided using a blade coater is especially preferable.

Smooth supports having a smoothness, as defined in JIS-8119, of from 300 seconds to 500 seconds are preferable from the viewpoint of dot reproducibility. In order that the thermosensitive recording surface has a smooth surface having an Oken smoothness of at least 300 seconds, it is especially preferable that the smoothness as defined in JIS-8119 is at least 100. Further, in order that the thermosensitive recording surface has a smooth surface having an Oken smoothness of at least 500 seconds, it is preferable that the smoothness as defined in JIS-8119 is at least 200; and in order that the thermosensitive recording surface has a smooth surface having an Oken smoothness of at least 700 seconds, it is preferable that the smoothness as defined in JIS-8119 is at least 300 seconds.

In addition, the support that is used in the invention has an undercoat layer. It is preferable that the undercoat layer is provided on a support having a Stockigt size of at least 5 seconds and is made of a pigment and a binder as major components.

As the pigment, all of general inorganic or organic pigments can be used, but oil-absorbing pigments having an oil absorbency, as defined in JIS-K5101, of at least 40 mL/100 g (cc/100 g) are especially preferable. Examples of the oil-absorbing pigments include calcined kaolin, aluminum oxide, magnesium carbonate, calcium carbonate, barium sulfate, amorphous silica, calcined diatomaceous earth, aluminum silicate, kaolin, magnesium aluminosilicate, aluminum hydroxide, and urea-formalin resin powders. Among these, calcined kaolin having an oil absorption, as defined in JIS-K5101, of from 70 to 80 mL/100 g is especially preferable.

Examples of the binder that is used in the undercoat layer include water-soluble polymers and aqueous binders. These materials may be used alone or in admixture of two or more thereof.

Examples of the water-soluble polymers include starch, polyvinyl alcohol, polyacrylamide, carboxymethyl cellulose, methyl cellulose, and casein.

As the aqueous binders, synthetic rubber latices and synthetic resin emulsions are general, and examples thereof include a styrene-butadiene rubber latex, an acrylonitrile-butadiene rubber latex, a methyl acrylate-butadiene rubber latex, and a vinyl acetate emulsion.

The amount of the binder to be used depends upon the film strength of the coating layer or the thermosensitivity of the thermosensitive color developing layer, but is from 3 to 100 % by mass, preferably from 5 to 50 % by mass, and especially preferably from 8 to 15 % by mass on a basis of the pigment to be added to the undercoat layer. Further, wax, a discoloration-preventing agent, a surfactant, and the like may be added to the undercoat layer.

Known application methods can be used in application of the undercoat layer. Concretely, methods using an air knife coater, a roll coater, a blade coater, a gravure coater, a curtain coater, or the like can be used, and the method using a blade coater is preferable. Further, the undercoat layer may be subjected to smoothening processing such as calendering and then put into use, if desired.

The method using a blade coater is not limited to coating methods using a bevel type or vent type blade, and includes rod blade coating and bill blade coating. Further, the application is not limited to those using an off-machine coater, but may be performed with an on-machine coater installed in a paper machine. Incidentally, in order to obtain superior smoothness and surface properties by imparting fluidity during blade coating, carboxymethyl cellulose having an etherification degree of from 0.6 to 0.8 and a weight average molecular weight of from 20,000 to 200, 000 may be added to the coating solution for undercoat layer in an amount of from 1 to 5 % by mass, and preferably from 1 to 3 % by mass on a basis of the pigment.

The application amount of the undercoat layer is not particularly limited, but is usually at least 2 g/m2, preferably at least 4 g/m2, and especially preferably from 7 g/m2 to 12 g/m2 according to the characteristics of the thermosensitive recording material.

<Thermosensitive color developing layer>

The thermosensitive color developing layer to be formed on the support contains at least an electron-donating colorless dye and an electron-accepting compound and may further contains a sensitizer, an image stabilizer and a UV absorbent.

These compounds may be used alone or in admixture of two or more thereof.

By using at least one selected from 2-anilino-3-methyl-6-diethylaminofluorane, 2-anilino-3-methyl-6-(N-ethyl-N-isoamylamino)fluorane, and 2-anilino-3-methyl-6-(N-ethyl-N-propylamino)fluorane as the electron-donating colorless dye, it is possible to further enhance the color density and preservability of image portions.

Alternatively, the thermosensitive recording material of the invention can increase sensitivity and enhance image preservability, chemical resistance and sticking properties.

The addition amount of the electron-accepting compound is preferably from 50 to 400 % by mass, and especially preferably from 10 to 300 % by mass on a basis of the electron-donating colorless dye.

In the invention, so far as the effects of the invention are not hindered, a known electron-accepting compound other than 4-hydroxybenzenesulfone anilide may be used together with 4-hydroxybenzenesulfone anilide as the electron-accepting compound.

The known electron-accepting compound can be properly selected and used, but phenolic compounds or salicylic acid derivatives and polyvalent metal salts thereof are especially preferable from the viewpoint of inhibition of the background fogging.

Examples of the phenolic compounds include 2,2'-bis(4-hydroxyphenol)propane (bisphenol A), 4-t-butylphenol, 4-phenylphenol, 4-hydroxydiphenoxide, 1,1'-bis(4-hydroxyphenyl)cyclohexane, 1,1'-bis(3-chloro-4-hydroxyphenyl)cyclohexane, 1,1'-bis(3-chloro-4-hydroxyphenyl)-2-ethylbutane, 4,4'-sec-isooctylidene diphenol, 4,4'-sec-butylene diphenol, 4-tert-octylphenol, 4-p-methylphenylphenol, 4,4'-methylcyclohexylidene phenol, 4,4'-isopentylidene phenol, 4-hydroxy-4-isopropyloxydiphenylsulfone, 4,4'-dihydroxydiphenylsulfone, 2,4'-dihydroxydiphenylsulfone, 2,4-bis(phenylsulfonyl)phenol, N-(4-hydroxyphenyl)-p-toluene sulfonamide, and benzyl p-hydroxybenzoate.

In the invention, in the case where the foregoing known electron-accepting compounds are used together with 4-hydroxybenzenesulfone anilide, the content of the foregoing 4-hydroxybenzenesulfone anilide is preferably at least 50 % by mass, more preferably at least 70 % by mass, and most preferably at least 90 % by mass of the whole mass of the electron-accepting compounds.

In the invention, when a coating solution for the thermosensitive color developing layer is prepared, the size of the electron-accepting compound particles is preferably 1.0 µm or less, and more preferably from 0.4 to 0.7 µm in terms of volume mean particle size. When the volume mean particle size exceeds 1.0 µm, thermosensitivity may lower. The volume mean particle size can be easily measured by a laser diffraction type particle size distribution measurement device (for example, LA500 (trade name) manufactured by Horiba, Ltd.), and the like.

(Sensitizer)

The thermosensitive recording material preferably contains at least one selected from 2-benzyloxynaphthalene, dimethylbenzyl oxalate, m-terphenyl, ethylene glycol tolyl ether, p-benzylbiphenyl, and 1,2-diphenoxymethylbenzene as a sensitizer in the thermosensitive color developing layer. By containing such a sensitizer, it is possible to enhance sensitivity more.

The content of the sensitizer is preferably from 75 to 200 parts by mass, and more preferably from 100 to 150 parts by mass based on 100 parts by mass of 4-hydroxybenzenesulfone anilide as the electron-accepting compound. When the content of the sensitizer falls within the range of from 75 to 200 parts by mass, not only the effect of enhancement of sensitivity is large, but also image preservability is good.

So far as the effects of the invention are not hindered, a sensitizer other than the foregoing sensitizers may be used together with the foregoing sensitizer in the thermosensitive color developing layer according to the invention. In the first, third and fourth aspects, in the case where other sensitizer is contained, the content of the foregoing sensitizer is preferably at least 50 % by mass, more preferably at least 70 % by mass, and most preferably at least 90 % by mass of the whole mass of the sensitizers.

Examples of such other sensitizer include dimethylbenzyl oxalate, ethylene glycol tolyl ether, stearic acid amide, aliphatic monoamides, stearylurea, p-benzylbiphenyl, di(2-methylphenoxy) ethane, di(2-methoxyphenoxy)ethane, &bgr;-naphthol-(p-methylbenzyl) ether, &agr;-naphthyl benzyl ether, 1,4-butanediol-p-methylphenyl ether, 1,4-butanediol-p-isopropylphenyl ether, 1,4-butanediol-p-tert-octylphenyl ether, 1-phenoxy-2-(4-ethylphenoxy)ethane, 1-phenoxy-2-(chlorophenoxy) ethane, 1,4-butanediolphenyl ether, diethylene glycol bis(4-methoxyphenyl) ether, m-terphenyl, methyl oxalate benzyl ether, 1,2-diphenoxymethylbenzene, 1,2-bis(3-methylphenoxy)ethane, and 1,4-bis(phenoxymethyl)benzene.

(Image stabilizer)

In addition, the thermosensitive color developing layer may contain an image stabilizer.

Phenol compounds, especially hindered phenol compounds are effective as the image stabilizer. Examples thereof include 1,1,3-tris(2-methyl-4-hydroxy-5-tert-butylphenyl)butane, 1,1,3-tris(2-ethyl-4-hydroxy-5-cyclohexylphenyl)butane, 1,1,3-tris(3,5-di-tert-butyl-4-hydroxyphenyl)butane, 1,1,3-tris(2-methyl-4-hydroxy-5-tert-butylphenyl)propane, 2,2'-methylene-bis(6-tert-butyl-4-methylphenol), 2,2'-methylene-bis(6-tert-butyl-4-ethylphenol), 4,4'-butylidene-bis(6-tert-butyl-3-methylphenol), and 4,4'-thio-bis(3-methyl-6-tertbutylphenol).

Among them, it is preferable to contain at least one selected from 1,1,3-tris(2-methyl-4-hydroxy-5-tert-butylphenyl)butane and 1,1,3-tris(2-methyl-4-hydroxy-5-cyclohexylphenyl)butane. By containing such an image stabilizer, not only background fogging can be improved but also the preservability of the image portions can be further enhanced due to mutual action with 4-hydroxybenzenesulfone anilide as the electron-accepting compound.

In the case where the foregoing 1,1,3-tris(2-methyl-4-hydroxy-5-tert-butylphenyl)butane and 1,1,3-tris(2-methyl-4-hydroxy-5-cyclohexylphenyl)butane are used together with other image stabilizer, the content of the foregoing 1,1,3-tris(2-methyl-4-hydroxy-5-tert-butylphenyl)butane or 1,1,3-tris(2-methyl-4-hydroxy-5-cyclohexylphenyl)butane (the total content in the case where the both are used together) is preferably at least 50 % by mass, more preferably at least 70 % by mass, and most preferably at least 90 % by mass of the whole mass of the image stabilizers.

The total amount of the image stabilizer to be used is preferably from 100 to 300 parts by mass, more preferably from 150 to 300 parts by mass, and most preferably from 200 to 250 parts by mass based on 100 parts by mass of the electron-donating colorless dye from the viewpoints of more effectively exhibiting the desired effects in background fogging and image preservability.

(UV absorbent)

Further, so far as the effects of the invention are not hindered, the thermosensitive recording material of the invention may contain a UV absorbent in the thermosensitive color developing layer. Examples of the UV absorbent that can be used in the invention include those given below.

In the invention, dispersion of the electron-donating colorless dye, electron-accepting compound and sensitizer can be performed in a water-soluble binder. The water-soluble binder to be used in this case is preferably a compound that is dissolved in an amount of at least 5 % by mass in water at 25 °C.

Specific examples of the water-soluble binder include polyvinyl alcohol, methyl cellulose, carboxymethyl cellulose, starches (including modified starches), gelatin, gum arabic, casein, and saponification products of a styrene-maleic anhydride copolymer.

The binder is used not only during the dispersion but also for the purpose of enhancing the coating film strength of the thermosensitive color developing layer. In order to achieve this purpose, a synthetic polymer latex binder such as styrene-butadiene copolymers, vinyl acetate copolymers, acrylonitrile-butadiene copolymers, methyl acrylate-butadiene copolymers, and polyvinylidene chloride can also be used together.

The foregoing electron-donating colorless dye, electron-accepting compound and sensitizer are dispersed simultaneously or separately by a stirrer or pulverizer such as a ball mill, an attritor, and a sand mill to prepare a coating solution. The coating solution may contain any pigment, metallic soap, wax, surfactant, antistatic agent, UV absorbent, defoaming agent, and fluorescent dye, if desired.

Examples of the pigment include calcium carbonate, barium sulfate, lithopone, agalmatolite, kaolin, calcined kaolin, amorphous silica, and aluminum hydroxide. Examples of the metallic soap include higher fatty acid metal salts such as zinc stearate, calcium stearate, and aluminum stearate.

Examples of the wax include paraffin wax, microcrystalline wax, carnauba wax, methylol stearamide, polyethylene wax, polystyrene wax, and fatty acid amide wax. These waxes may be used alone or in admixture. Examples of the surfactant include alkali metal salts of sulfosuccinic acid and fluorine-containing surfactants.

These materials are mixed and then applied onto the support. The application method is not particularly limited, but the mixture is applied by using, for example, an air knife coater, a roll coater, a blade coater, or a curtain coater, dried, subjected to smoothening processing by calendering, and then put into use. Especially, the method using a curtain coater is preferable in the invention.

Further, the application amount of the thermosensitive color developing layer is not limited, but is usually preferably from about 2 to 7 g/m2 in terms of dry weight.

<Protective layer>

If desired, a protective layer can be provided on the thermosensitive color developing layer. The protective layer can contain an organic or inorganic fine powder, a binder, a surfactant, and a heat-fusible substance. Examples of the fine powder include inorganic fine powders such as calcium carbonate, silica (including amorphous silica), zinc oxide, titanium oxide, aluminum hydroxide, zinc hydroxide, barium sulfate, clay, talc, and surface-processed calcium or silica; and organic fine powders such as urea-formalin resins, styrene/methacrylic acid copolymers, and polystyrene.

Examples of the binder that can be used in the protective layer include polyvinyl alcohol, carboxy-modified polyvinyl alcohol, vinyl acetate-acrylamide copolymers, silicon-modified polyvinyl alcohol, starches, modified starches, methyl cellulose, carboxymethyl cellulose, hydroxymethyl cellulose, gelatins, gum arabic, casein, styrene-maleic acid copolymer hydrolysates, polyacrylamide derivatives, polyvinylpyrrolidone, and latices such as a styrene-butadiene rubber latex, an acrylonitrile-butadiene rubber latex, a methyl acrylate-butadiene rubber latex, and a vinyl acetate emulsion.

Further, it is possible to add a waterproofing agent that crosslinks the binder component in the protective layer to further enhance preservability of the thermosensitive recording material. Examples of the waterproofing agent include water-soluble initial condensates such as N-methylolurea, N-methylolmelamine, and urea-formalin; dialdehyde compounds such as glyoxal and glutaraldehyde; inorganic crosslinking agents such as boric acid, borax, and colloidal silica; and polyamide epichlorohydrin.

With respect to Examples 1 to 17 and Comparative Examples 1 to 3, sensitivity, background fogging, image preservability, chemical resistance, printing trouble due to friction between a head and the recording material, and adaptability to inkjet printing were evaluated.

The results are shown in Table 1. Each of evaluation methods is as follows.

(1) Sensitivity

Printing was performed using a thermosensitive printing device having a thermal head (trade name: KJT-216-8MPD1, manufactured by Kyocera Corporation) and pressure rolls of 100 kg/cm2 just before the head. The printing was carried out at a pulse width of 1.5 ms under conditions of a head voltage of 24 V and a pulse frequency of 10 ms, and printing density was measured by a Macbeth reflection densitometer (RD-918).

(2) Background fogging

with respect to each of the thermosensitive recording materials, density of background after being allowed to stand in an environment at 60°C and at a relative humidity of 20 % for 24 hours was measured by a Macbeth reflection densitometer (RD-918). The lower the numerical value is, the better the result is.

(3) Image preservability

An image was recorded on each of the thermosensitive recording materials with the same device and under the same conditions as in the above-described item (1), and image density immediately after printing was measured by a Macbeth reflection densitometer (RD-918). Thereafter, the thermosensitive recording materials recording the image were allowed to stand in an atmosphere at 60°C and at a relative humidity of 20 % for 24 hours, and then image density was measured by a Macbeth reflection densitometer (RD-918). A rate (image retention rate) of the image density after being allowed to stand to the image density immediately after printing was calculated by the following equation. The higher the numerical value is, the better the image preservability is. Image retention rate = ( Image density after being allowed to stand under the foregoing condition ) / Image density immediately after printing × 100

(4) Chemical resistance

An image was printed on each of the thermosensitive recording materials under the same conditions as in the above-described item (1), and another image was written on the surfaces of the background and printed portions thereof with a fluorescent pen (trade name: Zebra Fluorescent Pen 2-Pink, manufactured by Zebra Co., Ltd.). One day after the another image was written, the state of generation of background fogging and the stability of the image portions of the thermosensitive recording materials were visually observed and evaluated according to the following criteria.

[Criteria]

  • A: Generation of fogging was not observed, and change of the image portions was not observed.
  • B: Generation of fogging was slightly observed, and color of the image portions slightly faded.
  • C: Generation of fogging was remarkably observed, and color of the image portions substantially faded.

(5) Evaluation of printing trouble due to friction between a head and the recording material

A test chart at a printing rate of 20 % was printed on 1, 000 A4-size sheets with a word processor (trade name: Toshiba Rupo 95JV, manufactured by Toshiba Corporation) . At that time, the number of missing dots was evaluated.

(6) Evaluation of adaptability to inkjet printing:

Red letters were printed on each of the thermosensitive recording materials in a superfine mode with an inkjet printer (trade name: MJ930, manufactured by Seiko Epson Corporation) and the color (fogging) of the printed letters and optionally the state of blotting were evaluated.

(1) Fogging

  • A: vivid red
  • B: Dull red
  • C: Dark red rather than red

(2) Blotting:

  • A: The letters could be clearly read.
  • B: The letters blotted, but there was no problem in reading.
  • C: The letters blotted and could be barely read.
  • D: The letters blotted and could not be read.

(7) Sticking properties

An image was printed on each of the thermosensitive recording materials with a facsimile machine (trade name: SFX 85, manufactured by Sanyo Electric co., Ltd.) and No. 3 Chart of The Electronic Imaging Society of Japan as a test chart. At that time, a printing sound and the state of missing of the image as visually measured were evaluated according to the following criteria.

[Criteria]

  • A: Noise other than the printing sound was not generated, and missing of the image was not observed.
  • B: A noise was slightly generated, and missing of the image was observed.
  • C: A clear noise (sticking sound) was generated, and missing of the image was largely observed.

(8) Resistance to inkjet inks

An image obtained by high-image quality printing with an inkjet printer (trade name: MJ930C, manufactured by Seiko Epson Corporation) was brought into contact with the surface of each of the thermosensitive recording materials on which an image had been printed in the same manner as in the case of evaluation of sensitivity as described above, and was allowed to stand at 25 °C for 48 hours. Thereafter, image density was measured by a Macbeth reflection densitometer (RD-918) . The image density of a non-treated thermosensitive recording material was also measured. A rate (remaining rate) of the image density of the treated thermosensitive recording material to that of non-treated thermosensitive recording material was calculated. The higher the numerical value is, the better the resistance to inkjet inks is.

(9) Background light fastness

Each of the thermosensitive recording materials was directly exposed to sunlight (500,000 lux·h (as measured by a digital illumination photometer, T-1 (trade name) manufactured by Minolta Co., Ltd.)). Thereafter, the density of the background of each thermosensitive recording material was measured by a Macbeth reflection densitometer (RD-918). The lower the numerical value is, the better the result is.

On the other hand, the thermosensitive recording material obtained in Comparative Example 1 in which bisphenol A was used as the electron-accepting compound is inferior in sensitivity, image preservability, chemical resistance and inkjet fogging. Further, the thermosensitive recording material obtained in Comparative Example 2 in which a sulfonamide compound different from the sulfonamide compound used in the invention was used is inferior in inkjet fogging in addition to sensitivity and image preservability. In addition, the thermosensitive recording material obtained in Comparative Example 3 in which the thermosensitive recording surface had an Oken smoothness of 200 seconds is extremely poor in sensitivity.
