Printing Technologies introduces a formula that meets the challenges of coding onto oily surfaces.
The Linx Black oil-penetrating ink 1062 can print through light layers of oil onto a wide range of materials, including plastics, metal, glass and waxy surfaces.
The ink also provides good adhesion on oriented polypropylene or OPP and other plastic films for industrial and food applications.
Compatible with Linx 8900 printers, Linx 1062 ink is an MEK-based ink with a fast drying time of one to two seconds that can adhere to substances with an oily or greasy film to deliver reliable long-term code durability.
It offers excellent contrast and legibility on transparent and pale colored materials, and is able to resist a range of oils including engineering cutting fluid, petroleum and kerosene.
Its heat-resistant properties also ensure good code legibility after autoclaving or cooking processes.
Typical applications include light engineering, automotive, aerospace, wax-coated PVC cables and all types of metal components, as well as canned foods and packaging film for flow wrap, pouches and bags in food sectors such as meat, bakery and confectionery.
