White and red inks introduced for extrusion applications

White and red inks have been introduced by Videojet Technologies for extruded pipe, hose, cable, and wire applications. The V494 white and V493 high-contrast red inks are designed for use with the company's 1710 small-character continuous ink jet printer.

Videojet-250.jpgVideojet V494 white ink is formulated for use on dark-colored extrusions. The ink is particularly suited for manufacturers requiring superior tape-transfer code adhesion and high contrast, says the company. It adheres to a range of tough-to-code plastic materials, and features sun and UV fade resistance and product-to-product transfer resistance.

The high-contrast red V493 ink is designed for use as a functional alternative to conventional white inks for coding on extruded pipe, hose, and cable substrates. Properties include adhesion and high contrast on both light and dark substrates, even after exposure to UV light. The ink withstands product contact pressure and elevated substrate temperatures and provides short-duration, high-temperature flame resistance without fading.

The company also offers V493C ink, which is formulated with white and red pigments to provide both brightness and color contrast and to retard fading. The ink is designed to help increase printer versatility in a production environment by reducing the expense of switching to different inks and minimizing the need to maintain spare printers dedicated to specific colors.
