Long-term reliability is assured by the ink’s excellent resistance to factors that can adversely affect performance, including heat, light and chemicals. The ink is temperature resistant to 200ºC and maintains legibility to 300ºC. Robust UV resistance gives the ink light-fastness to prevent it fading, while it is resilient to chemical splash from akalis, acids, water, alcohol, petrol and cutting fluid
Linx Opaque blue ink 1043 is optimised for Linx’s specialist CIJ solution for pigmented inks, the Linx 7300 Spectrum. “The right combination of printer and ink is crucial to achieving the best coding results possible, and the ink has been developed with the capabilities of the Spectrum model in mind,” confirms Charles Randon, Linx’s Senior Product Manager for CIJ.
Customers also benefit from the ink’s MEK base, which ensures a fast drying time of 1-2 seconds for smudge-free coding, and economic solvent usage of only 6-8ml per hour.
“Linx Opaque blue ink 1043 has already enjoyed successful customer trials in Germany and the Czech Republic, and we are confident that our ‘blue sky thinking’ will prove popular worldwide,” concludes Charles Randon.
