Matthews Introduces Water- & Solvent-Based, High Contrast, Low-Priced Inks for Packaging
Press release date: June 7, 2007
Pittsburgh, PA, June 7, 2007 - Matthews Marking Products has just introduced the PX Series of packaging inks for use in Matthews Drop-on-Demand and other manufacturers' DOD ink-jet systems. These new inks print darker than competitors, ensuring a bolder, higher-contrast message on a wide variety of materials.
All PX ink formulas are designed to be environmentally friendly. The full PX range includes several water-based choices (PX-370, SX-370) that provide strong contrast with HAPS-free printing. These water-based inks are designed to for package printing applications on corrugated, paper, cardboard, and other porous materials.
Solvent-based PX inks (PX-670, PX-470) are used for applications requiring permanent marking of non-porous packaging materials, such as plastic wrap, coated paper, and slick cardboard stock. These are quick-drying and work in all of Matthews' DOD ink-jet printheads.
PX Series inks are available in canister, liter, and 5 gallon pail sizes. Matthews Marking Products developed the entire PX Series line to provide a lower-priced ink selection for packagers using rugged and flexible Drop-on-Demand ink-jet printing technology.
