Direct / Indirect Thermal Printing Application Flexographic Ink

Direct/Indirect Thermal

High heat and water resistance make this line of water based printing inks an excellent choice for direct or indirect thermal printing applications. Depending on the substrate, these inks will provide heat resistance up to 450┬║ F and eliminate pick off or ink transfer to the print heads. Excellent ribbon transfer allows this system extreme versatility for both direct and indirect imaging applications. This system offers excellent print-ability on both papers and films and can be used in typical label applications as well.
