Applications for V499-D
V499 ink is ideal for coding onto personal care products. It can be used as a wetness indicator on absorbent diaper and incontinence products. The ink dissolves completely when exposed to water or water-based fluids.

Secondary applications include marks/codes intended for temporary in-plant batch or lot identification onto trays or batch containers that require very easy removal using a simple water solution. Other similar “removal” inks exist, but they all require water-based caustic or light soap solutions.

iQMark™: V499-D 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.
