V536 is an invisible fluorescent general purpose MEK ink qualified for use in the Videojet 1000 Line UHS continuous inkjet (CIJ) printers. This ink is ideal for use in high-speed applications such as paperboard, plastic, and metal substrates for covert coding. It is specially designed to be invisible to an unaided eye and become fluorescent blue when activated by ultraviolet (UV) light.
Benefits of V536-D
- Fluoresces @433nm when excited by UV light @365nm
- Survives pasteurization (65°C hot water bath) on metal substrates without blushing
- Survives retort (121°C steam heat) on metal substrates without blushing
- Resistant to acids, bases, Mil Spec Solvent C, mineral spirits, and oils
- Successor to legacy ink formulas 16-2300, 16-2340, and 201-0001-638
Applications for V536-D
V536 ink is typically used by high-speed (3000/min) can/bottle/package manufacturers to apply production tracking codes to containers that are later sold to and filled by food packagers. End products are sometimes retorted, pasteurized, or heat processed after filling. This ink is suitable for reliable 2-D codes on dark color substrates and is also used as a means to unobtrusively code and track products though the supply chain. This is especially practical where the available package/label area is limited.
V536 delivers excellent adhesion on acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), polystyrene, steel, and paper board.
MEK-free Low VOC (V930) and MEK-free Drug Precursor free (V940) alternative cleaners are available.
iQMark™: V536-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.
