V4248 is a lower temperature, heat-curable black MEK ink qualified for use the 1580 and 1860 continuous inkjet (CIJ) printers. This high-performance ink has been specifically designed for coding and marking applications in the aerospace, automotive and electronics markets. It has excellent abrasion and solvent resistance when heat cured, meeting Mil-Spec 883 and Mil-Spec 202G, Method 215K durability requirements.

Benefits of V4248-D and V4248-L
  • Heat curing at 110º C (230º F) for 2 hours or 150º C (302º F) for 30 minutes achieves superior durability, including:
  • Passes Mil-Spec 883 Method 2015.14 and Mil-Spec 202, Method 215 solvents
  • Resistance to other common solvents, including: acetone, MEK, transmission fluid, gasoline, diesel fuel, ethanol, and isopropanol (IPA)
  • Rub, scratch, tape, and transfer resistance
  • Passes NASA’s outgassing specification when cured at 175º C (347º F) for 2 hours
  • Resistant to acids, bases, terpene defluxer, mineral spirits, oils, and retort processing
  • Successor to legacy ink formulas 16-5600, 16-5800, and 16-5900
Applications for V4248-D and V4248-L
V4248 is used for coding and marking metal and ceramic parts, including gold, nickel, and titanium, which go through a heat curing process after printing and require a permanent code. It is also used for coding cans that require retort and transfer resistance. This ink delivers excellent adhesion to polystyrene, steel, and nylon.

Low VOC (V930) cleaner, compliant with the California SCAQMD Rule 1171, is available.

iQMark™: V4248 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.
