The inks are particularly suited to dark-coloured glass bottles, Domino said.
Domino Printing Sciences has introduced a new high-contrast, alkali-washable yellow ink for the beverage industry, designed for coding onto dark-coloured reusable glass bottles.
The 2YL955i ink has the ability to adhere to wet surfaces and, thanks to its fast-dry properties, resists refrigerator storage and immersion in water when coded onto bottles. It is ideal for beer, soft drinks and assorted beverage applications – as well as use on reusable rubber, black plastic kegs and some PET bottles, which are increasingly employed in glass bottle filling factories, Domino said.
“Printing legible codes onto certain bottles can prove to be a challenging task,” said Domino Printing Sciences product marketing manager Greg Treanor. “Thanks to extensive research and development, we have created an advanced high-contrast opaque yellow ink that is visible on a dark surface. The ink is particularly suited for use in returnable glass beverage plants, as it can be readily removed when the bottles are ‘caustic wash’ cleaned for refilling.
“We’ve listened to our customers in the beverage market to understand what products and services can help improve coding on their packaging lines. The 2YL955i high-definition ink is the result of our research and provides the market with a versatile solution that will considerably enhance [its] production efficiencies.”
