Home Humidifiers 60Hz About Humidity Printing and Photographic Industries

Because paper is hygroscopic, it is very susceptible to changes in relative humidity. For optimum printing and paper storage conditions, humidity levels should be maintained between 50-60% RH.

Electrostatic buildup, web breaks, toner adhesion and paper curl are all problems caused by dry air in the printing industry. Changes in humidity can cause the physical dimensions of the paper to change which results in misregistration of colors in multi-pass jobs. Dry air might cause electrostatic buildup, which could make paper sheets stick to one another and cause paper jam issues.

All these problems can be greatly decreased by properly humidifying the environment of the printing presses, reel stand areas and paper stores.
