Videojet Technologies has launched a new UV fluorescing ink designed to deliver codes for high end cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and other consumer goods.

The new UV ink is colourless in normal light and fluoresces blue under a black light.

With its MEK solvent base, the ink offers very good adhesion to a variety of substrates including coated cartons or glossy labels, vial caps and closures, and dark substrates where a bar code is needed.

The clear, UV fluorescing ink is suited to GS1-DataMatrix and other 2D codes, and is resistant to the autoclave process. This ink offers a 2-3 second dry time on non-porous materials such as ABS, HDPE, PET, PVC and nylon, and Videojet delivers good adhesion versatility on a wide range of substrates.

Heidi Wright, business unit manager, TIJ & TTO, at Videojet, said: “This ink was initially developed for the pharmaceutical market; however, it is also suited to a variety of other applications including retort processed food containers and cosmetic packaging.”
