Applications for V516-D
V516 is ideal for metal cans and plastic/foil pouches of food that require a retort process including vegetables, fruit, soup, sauces, baby food, meat/fish, and ready-to-eat meals. During the cooking process, containers can get stacked, causing codes to come in contact with other containers. During those situations, this ink is transfer-resistant.

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

MEK-Free Low VOC (V930) and MEK-Free Drug Precursor Free (V940) alternative cleaners are available.

iQMark™: V516-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.
