Applications for V490-C
V490 ink delivers excellent adhesion to a wide variety of substrates including acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), polyvinylchloride (PVC), polycarbonate, and polyester. This ink was specifically formulated for polyvinylchloride (PVC), polyethylene (PE), crosslinked polyethylene (XLPE) wire and cable, ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) foam materials, and high molecular weight polyethylene (HMWPE) automotive parts and building materials. Wire and cable can be inkjet coded immediately after high temperature extrusion (typically 200°C / 400°F) to achieve the best adhesion and transfer resistance.
Non-MEK low VOC (V930) and non-MEK/Non-Acetone (V916 / V940) alternative cleaners are available.
iQMark™: V490-C 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.
