UV 161 Range of Inks

Not only does it excel in adhesive property but also in drying property and solvent resistance. This ink, Often used for non-absorbent substrates like PET, treated aluminum-laminated paper, PVC films, synthetic paper, PE and PP films, as well as paper, is suitable for both films and paper. Further, it is widely used in printing of labels (stickers) used for electric appliances, office equipments and auto parts where strong film is required.

Handling Instructions

Leaving a non-absorbent stock print outdoor, or exposing it to water (including dew) causes adhesiveness to deteriorate to the extent that the printed object will peel-off even by a nail scratch.
