Linx Printing Technologies has introduced an ink specially formulated to resist moisture, color change, and transference. It is ideal for consistent coding through the pouch and can retort applications where the contents are cooked in the packaging after they are coded. The new Linx Black retort ink 1077 has been specifically developed for the company’s market-leading Linx 8900 and 8800 Series continuous inkjet (CIJ) coders and is a dye-based MEK ink. This specialist ink is specifically designed for use in typical sterilization and wet retort process conditions. Its special formulation enables the printers to code through a thin layer of oily film or grease. In addition, it contains components that enhance its adhesion under moist and high-temperature conditions, delivering good adhesion and good transfer resistance, as well as excellent durability and legibility on a range of materials after processing. Typical applications for Linx Black retort ink 1077 include a variety of food packs, such as ready meals, vegetables, beans, fruit, soup, rice, meat and fish products, and pet foods. This includes any products that are coded before a cooking process. The ink is suitable for use on many materials including metal cans, formed aluminum, and plastic packaging such as polyester (PET) pouches, the company said.
