Excellent contrast ink is highly versatile

  • Linx Printing Technologies

Linx Printing Technologies is launching a new opaque yellow pigmented ink that delivers excellent contrast on both light and dark substrates to ensure effective code visibility across a wide range of 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 with Linx’s Midi plus and Ultima plus printheads on the company’s Linx 5900 and Linx 7900 series printers to code a wide variety of materials including plastics, in particular PVC, PP, OPP and PVC jacketed wire and cables, 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.

Linx 1079 also offers superior lightfastness, making it particularly suitable for products and packs that are exposed to light for extended periods.

The ink’s nine month shelf life is longer than many competitor pigmented inks and enables companies to carry out effective stock management.  Using the ink, printers can operate for up to 1400 hours between scheduled maintenance.
