Applications for V4220-D and V4220-L
This ink is used for coding and marking returnable glass bottles used in the beverage industry. These bottles are returned from the marketplace, cleaned in a caustic wash process, and refilled shortly thereafter with cold beverages. The bottle surfaces are typically wet, due to condensation from hot, humid environments. Excessive amounts of water must be removed using an air-knife or blow off system for good print quality and adhesion.

V4220 delivers excellent adhesion to a wide variety of other substrates including: acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), aluminum, polystyrene, polyvinylchloride (PVC), polycarbonate, polyester, steel, and nylon.

iQMark™: V4220 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.
