Videojet Introduces Continuous Inkjet Ink with Excellent Abrasion Resistance on HDPE

CHICAGO – May 12, 2021 — A global leader in coding, marking, and printing solutions with over 40 years of world class inkjet fluid design experience, Videojet Technologies is pleased to announce the global launch of V4230 black ink. This MEK-based continuous inkjet (CIJ) ink is specifically formulated for superior abrasion resistance on rigid high-density polyethylene (HDPE) containers like cleaner spray bottles, detergent bottles, shampoo/conditioner bottles and motor oil bottles.

In addition to HDPE, V4230 ink exhibits excellent adhesion and abrasion resistance when printed on many challenging materials found in CPG packaging, such as low-density polyethylene (LDPE), polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene. The ink also performs well on plastic pipes, wire and cable insulation, and flexible films, in addition to acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), aluminum, polystyrene, polyvinylchloride (PVC), polycarbonate, polyester, steel and nylon. V4230 is resistant to many acids, bases, mineral spirits and oils.

Videojet V4230 ink is compliant with the Swiss Food Packaging Ordinance and it does not contain any materials included on the European Printing Ink Association (EuPIA) Exclusion List.

According to Sherry Washburn, Videojet Supplies Business Unit Manager, “Videojet is pleased to offer this ink that meets customer demands for superior adhesion. It is specifically engineered for use in productive and easy-to-use Videojet CIJ printers, like the Videojet 1580, to produce high-quality codes, text, expiration dates, logos and bar codes, including 2D DataMatrix, even at high speeds and in continuous production environments.”

V4230 is part of the Videojet iQMarkTM family of supplies. These fluids are responsibly designed and manufactured to maximize contrast, adhesion and uptime while meeting global safety, environmental and regulatory requirements. Every batch is tested to help ensure that it meets strict Videojet quality control specifications. With a variety of inks to choose from, Videojet experts help customers choose the ink best suited to their individual application requirements.
