A new fast drying, high performance black ink that can be used on a wide range of plastic-based substrates has been introduced for Domino's A-Series continuous ink jet printers, available locally from insignia .
Designed and extensively tested within Domino's research and development laboratory, the MEK-based 299BK black ink delivers excellent coding performance on a wide range of plastics that are increasingly used in packaging applications.
Its composition ensures high adhesion properties and solid scratch resistance on low surface energy plastics such as:
- thermoplastic olefins (including BOPP, OPP)
- polyethylenes (including HDPE and LDPE); and
- a range of multi-layer flexible packaging materials.
299BK ink has also been extensively tested to ensure it remains moisture resistant and delivers high quality output even within challenging production and storage environments.
Conforming fully to EuPIA recommendations for 'inks for Food Packaging', 299BK ink is capable of providing coding text, and batch and serialising numbering on a range of plastic packaging formats, including:
- caps and closures
- pots; and
