WOOD DALE, Ill.—Videojet Technologies Inc., a leading global manufacturer of  coding, printing and laser marking equipment, inks and accessories for the product identification industry, has launched 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.

“Our customers not only need high quality printers, but also high-performing inks that will fulfill their coding needs. Non-Porous Black ink for our thermal ink jet printers enables customers in a variety of industries to print codes with excellent quality,” says Casey Robertson, Videojet’s North American thermal inkjet product manager.

The 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 (Hewlett-Packard) 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.

Videojet recommends the new ink for customers involved in packaging food, personal care items or consumer packaged goods that often use coated cartons or labels, as the Non-Porous Black ink is solvent-based, delivering quick dry times for blister packaging becomes especially useful to companies in the pharmaceutical and nutraceutical industries.
