Linx Printing Technologies has expanded its range of specialist inks with the introduction of a formula that meets the challenges of coding onto oily surfaces, such as butter packaging. 

Linx Black oil-penetrating ink 1062 can print through light layers of oil onto materials, including plastics, metal, glass and waxy surfaces. 

It also provides good adhesion on Oriented Polypropylene (OPP) and other plastic films, making it ideal for a variety of food applications. 

Typical applications include canned foods and packaging film for flow wrap, pouches and bags in food sectors such as dairy, bakery and confectionery.

Our Linx Black oil-penetrating ink 1062 has identified and overcome the perennial challenge of coding onto oily surfaces,” said Charles Randon, senior product manager, Linx.

This latest addition to our range of inks broadens the options available to our customers to ensure they can achieve consistently reliable and long-lasting codes, however challenging the application.”

Compatible with the full range of Linx 8900 printers, Linx 1062 ink is an MEK-based ink with a fast drying time of one to two seconds that can adhere to substances with an oily or greasy film for long-term code durability.
