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.
