How we’re protecting your health and safety COVID-19 Update

Specialised Inks


We recognise at Matthews that no two products have the same packaging or coding requirements. That’s why we sell a range of authentic, specialised inks that can suit your unique printing requirements. Whether it’s printing barcodes for security and traceability or needing non-permanent codes, we have an ink suitable for you.


Designed to suit your unique application

  • Whether you need an ink that will allow you to print highly pigmented colours onto materials, codes that are only needed temporarily or marking onto highly exposed products, we have an ink to match. Although these inks are specialised and different to typical general-purpose inks, they still produce an exceptional quality code that will meet the strictest requirements.
  • Common specialised inks include: thermochromic ink, UV (ultraviolet) readable & clear security, chemical removable (water, alkali or alcohol), oil or grease penetrating inks, abrasion or chemical resistant inks, super-fast drying inks, wetness indicators & wet process inks just to name a few.

Genuine Linx and Matthews inks for your printers

  • Our genuine ink range for specialised solutions, can ensure that your unique printing needs are met. Thanks to the high quality of materials used, our genuine specialised inks provide the assurance that you’ll get high quality codes on your products each time, helping to improve efficiency and output.

Help ensure product safety for your customers

  • At Matthews we know how important is to keep your products and customers safe. That’s why we provide a range of genuine inks from Linx and Matthews, that can be used to print anti-counterfeiting codes at an exceptional quality. This assists for easy product traceability and identification to help reassure your customers (and you), that the product is safe and what’s inside is what the packaging says it is.

High quality inks for a range of environments

  • Whilst most general-purpose inks lose their print quality when used in wet environments, Matthews range of heavy-duty and durable specialised inks shine when used in wet, industrial environments. This ensures that you can still apply high quality codes to your products even when needing to contend with water and mist.


If you’re using a specialised ink, you need a specialised solvent to go with it. In order to produce the highest quality of codes, text and images on your products and make sure your printhead lasts, your ink and solvent needs to work harmoniously together.
