Applications for V4251-D and V4251-L
This ink is used for coding and marking returnable plastic water containers, typically 5-gallon bulk water bottles used in home and business water coolers which are returned, washed, refilled, and reused. Standard inks can leave a permanently etched ink code on the surface of the plastic and be difficult to remove. Other uses include temporary marking of a material for internal tracking, such as: marking on a glass windshield which is removed before the vehicle is shipped for sale, and marking food bins that convey product through a production process, which is later removed, re-coded, and reused with new batch.

V4251 delivers good adhesion to a wide variety of substrates, including: aluminum, glass, polycarbonate, polyester, steel, and nylon.

iQMark™: V4251 ink was responsibly designed and manufactured to maximize contrast, adhesion, and uptime while meeting safety, environmental, and regulatory requirements. Every batch is tested to ensure it meets strict quality control specifications.
