Domino introduces a new black Ethanol-based ink for use with its G-Series range of thermal ink jet printers.
The new BK107 black ink delivers several benefits to coding and marking applications within the confectionery and food markets including exceptional adhesion properties, high quality print for greater contrast and readability as well as a lower cost of ownership for users.
Developed by Domino’s in-house team of chemists, and tested in some of the most challenging of environments, the BK107 black ink ensures excellent product coding while optimising the performance and longevity of the G-Series TIJ printer.
The formulation of Domino’s BK107 black ink provides excellent adhesion, which is highly resistant to abrasion and deterioration after application to a range of substrates such as Polyethylene, POPP, Cast PP and Polyester/PET, used extensively by confectionery and food manufacturers.
The exceptional adhesion characteristics of the ink eliminate the problem of print deterioration commonly found with many wax-based inks. The superior quality print provides a high visual contrast for easy readability, even at a lower dpi output.
The new BK107 black ink from Domino comes in a unique and convenient changeable print cartridge. The ink also conforms to Domino’s stringent Fluids Policy, which reflects recognised industry guidelines such as the EuPIA Guideline for Food Packaging Inks.
According to Alan Mutch, Product Manager - TIJ at Domino, selection of the right ink for a specific application is essential as the choice of ink affects not only the quality of printed output, but also the performance of the printer.
Domino combines the versatility of the G-Series printer with the superior adhesion and print qualities of the BK107 ink to provide confectionery and food manufacturers with a high quality, extremely durable ink that eliminates the shortcomings of wax-based alternatives.
