Domino Printing Sciences has launched a new ink for use in its range of G-Series thermal ink jet printers (TIJ) printers. The BK118 ink extends TIJ printing capabilities to effectively code onto challenging materials, such as plastics, films, foils and coated cartons.

Employed in a variety of industries ranging from food to pharmaceutical, thermal ink jet is perfectly suited for primary packaging and outer case applications. Now, thanks to the resistive qualities of the ethanol-based BK118, even glossy packaging materials can be coded.

“By using the benefits of a revised cartridge that is specifically designed for solvent based inks, we offer a TIJ ink that delivers consistent, durable codes with great character sharpness and high contrast,” explains Phil Parkins, TIJ Product Manager at Domino Printing Sciences. “Code quality and ink adhesion make BK118 ideal for high speed coding onto wrappers, sachets and flexible films.”

Furthermore, the BK118 and the multi-head capability of the G-Series’ TIJ printers prove to be an effective combination for coding onto non-porous primary packaging and glossy outer case packaging. With the ability to run up to four print heads from a single controller, one head can print onto primary packaging, while another simultaneously prints onto the outer case packaging.

“Our aim is to develop flexible solutions that respond to the challenges that our customers face, which is why we always monitor the demands of all the industries we operate in” concludes Phil. “We are confident that our new TIJ ink has delivered on that front and that customer response will be positive.”
