BX Series Pad Printing Ink

INK FOR PLASTIC, METAL, RUBBER, TPE

BX Series pad printing ink is a high-gloss, easy-to-use, all-purpose 1- or 2-component pad printing ink for printing many materials, including plastics, TPE (TPR), metals, carbon fiber, and more. This humidity-resistant and fast-drying ink adheres to a wide range of materials. Some of these materials include ABS, rPETE, PET, pre-treated polyethylene, and polypropylene.

When used as a two-component ink, the BX series offers exceptional scratch and abrasion resistance. This enables the BX series to not only pass adhesion resistance but also withstand sterilizing chemicals such as alcohol. As a result, this makes this Pad printing ink for TPE excellent for printing automotive TPE (TPEE) based components.

The BX Series pad printing ink is available in 12 opaque colors and 2 metallic shades. All the 12-high-opacity colors are intermixable to create over 1600 PMS shades. Contact us or click here for the color formulation calculator.

TMF PRINTING SOLVENT

Boston Industrial Solutions, Inc.’s Natron series screen and pad printing inks pair well with TMF Ink Thinner. Adding thinner affects not only ink viscosity, flow properties, and how the ink releases from the pad, but also drying speed, packaging, and adhesion capabilities.

Type TMF solvent keeps the ink wet for a longer period of time and still allows for optimal ink adhesion.

To regulate ink viscosity, add 10–25% of TMF Thinner to the ink and stir until homogeneous.

TMG PAD PRINTING SOLVENT

TMG is a fast-evaporating solvent that enables this ink series to bond to hard-to-print plastic materials, such as TPE.

TS3 RETARDER SOLVENT

The TS3 Ink Retarder modifies the solvent evaporation rate in Marabu screen and pad print inks. TS3 has a good solubility and evaporation rate.

PP PRIMER (PRE-TREATMENT)

Use the polypropylene adhesive primer on difficult-to-bond low-surface-energy plastics, such as polypropylene and polyethylene. This adhesion promoter increases the plastic’s surface energy, which reduces surface tension and promotes a better bond.
