Domino launches new security ink
Friday 01. September 2017 - Domino Digital Printing Solutions is launching a new fluorescent ink for its K600i piezo drop on demand ink jet printer at Labelexpo Europe 2017 (Stand 9A60, Brussels Expo, 25th - 28th September 2017). Ideal for security printing and brand protection, this latest addition to Dominos ink range, UV80CL, will help businesses battle counterfeiting and forgery.
Domino’s UV80CL ink prints clear, but fluoresces green, under an ultraviolet UV-A 365nm blacklight. It can be used to print 2D codes, barcodes, alpha numeric codes, images, graphics and personalised data printing, all of which may be used in security, authentication and anti-counterfeit applications. The combination of printing variable data with green fluorescence provides a high complexity rating which would be extremely difficult to replicate.
This makes it ideal to use to add security marks and features to currency, stamps, tax stamps, passports and certificates to prevent forgery, tampering or counterfeiting of such items. It can also be used to incorporate security features onto labels and packaging for traceability to safeguard against counterfeiting and parallel trade.
The Domino K600i printer can be easily integrated into an existing web-fed press, or used as a standalone roll-to-roll solution or finishing line, and the UV80CL ink is compatible with standard medias including polyethylene, polypropylene and coated and uncoated papers.
“In today’s price competitive and technology savvy marketplace, it is imperative that brand owners establish a strong and effective anti-counterfeiting and brand protection programme to safeguard their brands,” says Mark Herrtage, Aftercare Product Manager at Domino Printing Solutions. “With that in mind, the Domino UV80CL fluorescent ink provides security, label and packaging converters with an added value offering to assist brand owners on this quest.”
“We’re looking forward to meeting visitors on our stand at Labelexpo, where we can demonstrate how this new ink can help businesses address their security and brand protection needs.”
