Squid Ink Manufacturing Inc. (squidink.com) has added SI-PZ8010 UV LED White ink to its fluids family. UV LED curable white ink is approved for use in current Squid Ink CoPilot 128 and CoPilot 256 printing systems and should be used in conjunction with the Squid UV LED Curing System.
SI-PZ8010 is an ink created for printing on nearly any non-porous applications such as steel pipe, dark colored plastics, glass, metal and more. The company states it performs well on PVC, styrene, polyethylene, polypropylene and ABS type plastics. Squid Ink’s UV LED series inks feature near immediate cure times.
UV LED series inks do not cure without assistance of UV light and require minimal maintenance, resulting in an ideal solution for manufactures looking to mark their non-porous products. The new ink also has superior lightfast properties to reduce fading over time. Designed for permanent marking, SI-PZ8010 provides excellent rub resistance perfect for most non-porous applications.
The ink is available in 500ml light-proof bags designed for 100% ink utilization. Due to its pigmented nature, the ink requires use of Squid Ink’s Automatic Agitation System, which continuously stirs the ink to prevent pigmented particles from settling within the ink system.
The new white ink is available through Squid Ink’s worldwide network of authorized distributors.
