Markem-Imaje, a global provider of end-to-end supply chain solutions and industrial marking and coding systems, has launched a new pick-off resistant ink for its 5940 G Touch Dry High Resolution Inkjet Coder, which will be particularly impactful for the high-speed confectionary and nutraceuticals industry. 

The new 5016 ink offers multiple benefits for manufacturers looking to continue using Touch Dry hot melt inks in primary package printing applications, including improved rub test results, code legibility, and longevity with an ability to run high-speed, high-volume production lines while maintaining code integrity. 

In terms of pick-off resistance, it offers 100x less pick-off of ink when compared to the previous generation of Touch Dry primary packaging film inks and can result in a whole grade higher barcode score, of up to 400 rubs, at Grade C. Adhesion also is improved, which leads to less smearing and maintaining legibility. 

Markem-Imaje’s 5940 G sets the standard of coding quality, compliance, operational efficiency, and reduced total cost of ownership with a long-lasting sustainable solution. It offers greater throughput and compliant barcodes including GS1-128 requirements, 2D codes included. 

Gregory Kasprzak at Markem-Imaje said: “This new 5016 ink is made to be even better than our previous 9007 when it comes to printing on films. Code longevity and legibility are critical concerns, and pick-off resistance is desired by our customers because can literally be removed at the forming shoes of flow wrappers—this ink offers massive improvements to achieving these qualities in primary package flow wrapper applications.”
