Coding and printing technologies developer and manufacturer Domino has extended its range of continuous ink jet (CIJ) black inks with three new additions.

Compatible with the company's A-Series printers, the inks have been developed to meet the requirements of various industries, ranging from food to aerospace.

The 2BK026 black ink has been developed for the A420i and is mainly targeted at heat seal applications in the food sector. The ink is resistant to heat and pressure and suitable for use on surfaces where heat sealing is applied post coding, such as sachets and dry food packaging.

With high resistance to fats and edible oils, fast-dry black ink 2BK030 has been designed for direct printing onto food products. The ink can also handle the high temperatures required for steam sterilisation.

The 2BK028 fast dry black ink is designed for the aerospace industry and has received approval from Boeing. It is being adopted for coded aircraft components that require proof of identity and traceability.

Domino CIJ product manager Nick Plaister said that the company aims to develop a range of inks tailored to different applications that can answer the needs of all of its customers.

"We are constantly monitoring the demands of all the industries we operate in and for that reason we are confident the response to our new ink offering will be positive," Plaister added.
