  • 12.7mm high print band
  • Resolution up to 600 x 600 dpi
  • 42 ml nominal volume with 30 picoliter drop
  • Approximately 200,000 prints per cartridge (20 character, 10 pt. alphanumeric code @ 300 dpi)


Wolke Universal Black Thermal Inkjet Ink

Designed for primary packaging applications, Universal Black provides an optimal combination of performance parameters for porous and semi-porous materials.

  • Long decap time to aid first code print quality after line interruptions
  • Fast dry time, especially on porous substrates
  • Excellent edge acuity for crisp bar code elements and alphanumeric codes
  • Excellent UV resistance




Videojet / Wolke Premium Black Thermal Inkjet Ink

Formulated for DataMatrix applications where code contrast is an important element of code quality, Premium Black is 30-35% darker than Universal Black on typical substrates. In addition, Premium Black delivers the same performance benefits as Universal Black in terms of decap performance, dry time, edge acuity and UV resistance.
