Linx Printing Technologies has unveiled a new opaque yellow pigmented ink that promises excellent contrast on both light and dark substrates to ensure effective code visibility across a range of food packaging applications.
In addition, the new Linx Yellow pigmented ink 1079 provides a fast drying time of within two seconds, allowing it to be used on fast moving production lines or where products are handled soon after printing.
The ink can be used to code a wide variety of materials, including plastics, in particular PVC, PP and OPP, dry glass, card and steel. For industrial environments, it provides broad chemical splash and rub resistance, as well as excellent resistance to alkali, acid, water, alcohol, petrol and cutting fluid.
With a nine month shelf life, Linx 1079 also offers superior lightfastness, making it particularly suitable for products and packs that are exposed to light for extended periods.
