Videojet launches new coding inks

Videojet has announced three new Ultra High Speed inks for its line of UHS continuous ink jet printers. These new inks – V516-D, V517-D and V530-D – join a family of ten other UHS compatible inks that have been extensively tested across a broad range of print speeds and environmental condition extremes.
V516-D is a black, non-colour changing retortable ink that can withstand tough high-temperature steam/water bath processes commonly used in cooking prepared food containers after filling and sealing.
V517-D is a thermochromic ink that changes from black to blue when coding onto heat-processed food containers made of a variety of metal, plastic and glass substrates. This ink provides good durability as well as superior adhesion through the rigorous cooking/retort process.
V530-D is a patented high performance ink that comes in an environmentally-friendly MEK-free formula. It is specially designed for printing onto various hard-to-code plastics such as untreated polyethylene and polypropylene substrates typically found in the food packaging industry.
John Kirschner, Videojet supplies business manager, commented: “We developed the UHS inks to provide exceptional coding quality that our high speed application customers have come to rely on.”
