Domino Launches New Black Ink
Printing Sciences has launched a new black ethanol-based ink, called
BK107, for use with its G-Series range of thermal inkjet (TIJ)
printers. The formulation of BK107 has been specifically designed for
coding and marking applications within the confectionery and food
markets, which includes properties for stronger adhesion.
to Domino, this includes a high resistance to abrasion and deterioration
after application to a range of substrates such as Polyethylene, POPP,
Cast PP and Polyester/PET, which are used extensively by confectionery
and food manufacturers. The company continues to claim this helps to
eliminate the problem of print deterioration commonly found with many
wax-based inks. The BK107 ink comes in a changeable print cartridge,
while also meeting several guidelines for EuPIA and food packaging inks.
the right ink for your application is essential, as the choice of ink
affects not only the quality of printed output, but also the performance
of the printer,” stated Alan Mutch, Product Manager of TIJ at Domino.

countries through a network of 25 subsidiary offices and more
than 200 distributors. Domino’s manufacturing facilities are situated in
