Videojet Introduces New Yellow Ink,Ideal for Printing on Metal and Plastic
CHICAGO – March 16, 2021 – Videojet Technologies, a global leader in coding, marking and printing solutions, has announced the launch of the V425 yellow soft pigmented ink, an MEK-based (methyl ethyl ketone) ink for use in the Videojet 1710 continuous inkjet printer. The new V425 ink is ideal for printing on dark substrates such as plastics, wire and cable, and metals.
Printing codes on metal and plastic parts and components has become essential in many industries, including automotive, aerospace and electronics. Parts manufacturers require complex high-resolution codes printed on their products for traceability, to provide production data, and to defend against piracy and counterfeiting. Videojet V425 ink’s unique formulation helps it to meet the challenges of industrial part sizes, material types and environmental conditions.
V425 ink offers a fast dry time and is formulated for improved uptime, especially in hot, harsh and humid environments. With its yellow pigment, the ink provides contrast on dark and light colored substrates. The ink’s adhesion and chemical resistance make it well-suited for printing on rigid plastic automotive fluid containers and metal parts. It is resistant to automotive fluids, including motor oil, two-cycle engine oil, tire cleaner, fuel injection cleaner, leather conditioner and antifreeze/coolant. V425 is also resistant to acetic acid, ammonia, mineral spirits, propylene glycol and vegetable oil.
V425 ink adheres well to other substrates including acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), aluminum, polystyrene, polyvinylchloride (PVC), polycarbonate, steel and nylon. Its contrast and transfer resistance make this ink ideal for marking both black and white wires and cables.
Sherry Washburn, Videojet Business Unit Manager for Supplies, said, “Plastic, wire and cable, and parts of all sizes and substrates need consistent, high-resolution codes that can withstand harsh environments. With our wide portfolio of inks, Videojet remains committed to helping customers select the right ink to meet their unique application needs.”
