Print ink adheres to greasy surfaces

An ink that can adhere to substrates covered with oily or greasy films has been developed by Linx Printing Technologies and is said to ideal for a variety of food packs.

The new Linx Black grease-penetrating ink 1063, developed for the Linx 8900 Series continuous inkjet coders, is a methyl ethyl ketone-based ink.

It contains a black dye that delivers good contrast and legibility on transparent or pale coloured materials.

Its special formulation enables the printers to code through a light film of oil, grease or condensation, and to preserve code quality if the code is exposed to these later in the process.

Typical applications include a variety of food packs, such as butter, margarine, spreads and salad containers, meat and dairy processing, and packs that are coded before a cooking process.

The ink is suitable for use on various materials including: glass, metal and a wide range of plastics such as high density polyethylene film, polypropylene containers and caps, and treated and untreated orientated polypropylene.
