  • Process Tolerant Inks: Designed to code and mark products that are exposed to processes commonly found in the food and beverage industry, e.g. cooking, sterilisation or pasteurisation.

  • Removable Coding Inks: Designed for situations that need temporary product identification e.g. beverage industry, where containers are returned/reused and laboratory and medical glassware. 

  • Security (UV Readable) Inks: Allow discreet coding and marking applications such as anti-counterfeiting or internal traceability. 

  • Thermochromic Inks: Undergo a permanent colour change when subjected to certain wet-heat conditions, such as the sterilisation processes used in the food industry. They meet USDA regulations about incidental contact with food.
