Dummy

Benefits

  • Rapid fixation with low energy flash bulb technology
  • Excellent performance in high speed applications
  • Optimal solvent resistance
  • Excellent fastness performance

Performance coding for high speed applications

SensiJet® Garnet is a black UV curable ink designed for rapid drying and maximum durability. Tuned to fix with a flash bulb technology, Garnet offers the benefits of UV cure inks whilst allowing rapid printing in production environments where cost, time and space are at a premium. This flexible solution is also suitable for conventional UV curing systems. The flash cure process gives a minimal UV lamp footprint, optimal dot gain for high precision printing of features such as barcodes and allows immediate substrate handling after printing.

Suitable for printing composites, plastics and other challenging materials, SensiJet Garnet offers excellent adhesion and durability when printed on non-porous substrates, making it suitable for coding and marking in the harshest of environments. The printed ink is highly chemically resistant, allowing use in advanced processes.

Overview

SensiJet Garnet is a black coding and marking ink with fast UV cure offering excellent adhesion and chemical resistance when printed onto non-porous substrates.
It has been tested with a number of industrial printheads to ensure maximum flexibility during production printing.

Each printhead, system and application should be tested and verified to ensure maximum performance.

How to use

Printing

SensiJet Garnet is printed directly onto the selected substrate via a print fixture or system equipped with a specified industrial printhead and inline fixation.

Fixation

After printing onto the selected substrate, it should be fixed in line by flash bulb or conventional UV light exposure. The ink should be fixed within seconds to avoid any color bleed.
