Domino Digital Printing Solutions has announced a new fluorescent ink for its K600i piezo drop on demand inkjet printer.
Trimatt supplies Domino in New Zealand and Australia.
The company says the new ink range, UV80CL, targets security printing and brand protection to assist businesses in dealing with counterfeiting and forgery.
Compatible with standard media including polyethylene, polypropylene and coated and uncoated papers, the UV80CL ink Domino’s UV80CL ink prints clear but fluoresces green under an ultraviolet UV-A 365nm black light. You can use it 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 counterfeiter will have difficulty in replicating.
Printers can use it to add security marks and features to currency, stamps, tax stamps, passports and certificates to prevent forgery, tampering or counterfeiting. They can also use it to incorporate security features onto labels and packaging for traceability to safeguard against counterfeiting and parallel trade.
Domino says printers can easily integrate the Domino K600i printer into an existing web-fed press, or use it as a standalone roll-to-roll solution or finishing line.
Mark Herrtage, aftercare product manager at Domino, says, “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.
“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.”
Domino will demonstrate the new ink on its stand at the upcoming Labelexpo in Brussels later this month.
