Videojet’s V4264 and V464 non-MEK black inks demonstrate excellent adhesion to flexible food packaging and feature lower make-up consumption than comparable MEK-based inks.

The inks meet tough industry standards including the strict Japan ISHL Class 2 Organic Solvent List and the Swiss Food Packaging Ordinance. The inks’ most notable safety and sustainability differentiators include:

• Non-CMR (carcinogens, mutagens, reproductive toxins) formulation without MEK, acetone or methanol

• Less make-up consumption than comparable MEK-based inks, resulting in fewer cartridge changes and reduced plastic and cardboard waste, lower VOC emissions and fewer printer touches

Ideal for use where alternatives to MEK-based inks are preferred, such as with food applications, V4264 and V464 deliver excellent adhesion to a variety of substrates including acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), aluminum, biaxial oriented polypropylene (BOPP), polystyrene, polycarbonate, and steel. The inks also show excellent resistance to acids, bases, mineral spirits and oils.
