Videojet Technologies Inc. announced the launch of a new ink for its 8510 and Wolke thermal ink-jet (TIJ) printer lines. The Non-Porous Black ink (WLK660072) was designed for fast dry times on a wide range of non-porous materials.

Non-porous Black is a specially-formulated, solvent-based ink designed to dry quickly on a range of surfaces, such as coated or lacquered cartons, blister package materials, and some plastics. In addition, the ink maintains excellent light and water resistance, withstanding fading and smearing under routine conditions and/or after water contact.  Since HP technology is being utilized to print this ink, customers can expect no costly maintenance and very simple operation.

The Non-Porous Black ink dries quickly and adheres to a variety of substrates without the use of a dryer, or the need to modify the substrate.  It also extends the code assurance features of the Videojet 8510 and Wolke m600 touch printers to a wider range of applications. Customers packaging food, personal care items, or consumer packaged goods that often use coated cartons or labels, will find the Videojet Non-Porous Black ink beneficial.

Because the ink is solvent-based, delivering quick dry times for blister packaging becomes especially useful to companies in the pharmaceutical and nutraceutical industries.
