Domino Launches High-reliability Ink For the Beverage Sector

Domino Printing Sciences has reaffirmed its status as a leading provider of coding and marking solutions for the beverage sector with the introduction of a high-contrast, alkali-washable yellow ink. Compatible with the company’s A-Series i-Tech range of CIJ printers, the 2YL955i ink is designed for coding onto dark coloured, reusable glass bottles and has the ability to adhere to wet surfaces.

“Printing legible codes onto certain bottles can prove to be a challenging task,” explains Greg Treanor, Product Marketing Manager – CIJ at Domino Printing Sciences. “Thanks to extensive research and development, we have created an advanced high-contrast opaque yellow ink that is visible on a dark surface. The ink is particularly suited for use in returnable glass beverage plants, as it can be readily removed when the bottles are ‘caustic wash’ cleaned for refilling.”

Significantly, the 2YL955i has first-rate adhesion even in areas where surface condensation is present during the coding stage. Thanks to the ink’s fast dry properties (1-2 seconds), the printed code resists refrigerator storage and immersion in water, making it ideal for beer, soft drinks and assorted beverage applications.

However, glass bottles are not the only surface the 2YL955i can be printed on. The yellow ink is also ideal for coding onto reusable rubber, black plastic kegs and even some PET bottles, which are increasingly employed in glass bottle filling factories.

“We’ve listened to our customers in the beverage market to understand what products and services can help improve coding on their packaging lines,” concludes Greg. “The 2YL955i high definition ink is the result of our research and provides the market with a versatile solution that will considerably enhance their production efficiencies.”

The 2YL955i ink runs in Domino’s A-Series i-Tech printers (A320i, A420i and A520i), including the XS and Duo variants.
