1. Not compliant or suitable for the application
There are many non-certified inks on the market that aren’t suitable for both direct and non-direct food contact. For food and beverage manufacturers it is critical to establish whether the ink used in the inkjet coder is suitable for direct or non-direct food contact, whichever is applicable for the product in question. All of Domino's inks are manufactured to stringent criteria and certified to be used for specific substrates. For example, Domino’s black ethanol plastics ink (1BK111) for the Ax-Series (CIJ) is suitable for a wide range of substrates, but is primarily suited for application onto food packaging, beverage and dairy. Designed for non-direct food contact (i.e. the outside of food packaging), this ink has been manufactured to EuPIA standards and is ketone-free, meaning it’s environmentally friendly. For peace of mind, Domino can provide certification on every ink they manufacture, reaffirming the ink’s compliance and suitability for your application.
