Linx Printing Technologies has introduced Linx Black Ink 3401, a ketone-free ink suitable for a variety of coding applications across industries such as food and drink, cosmetics, confectionery and tobacco.

According to the company, it also offers “superior” light fastness and “excellent” adhesion and contrast on a wide range of materials including paper, card, plastic and flow-wrap.

“We know that many companies are now seeking a reliable and effective alternatives to ketone-based inks for certain types of applications,” says Linx Printing Technologies product manager Susan Palmer.

“Linx Black Ink 3401 exactly meets this need, while maintaining the high quality performance that customers have come to expect from our inks ranges.”

Linx Black Ink 3401 joins the company’s existing range of MEK-free ethanol-based inks and can be used with Linx’s market-leading 4900 and 7900 CIJ printers.

According to the company, Linx Black Ink 3401 has good general chemical resistance across many substances, including chemical splash from alkalis, acids, water, alcohol, petrol and cutting fluid; and it is said to be capable of heat resistance of up to 30 minutes at 300°C with no adhesion or colour change.
