TP/PP-A

  • 1 component ink
  •  Medium drying speed
  •  High Gloss

Polypropylene (PP) materials are generally difficult to print and can usually only be printed after pre-treatment such as corona, flame or with a specialised primer. TP/PP-A is an alternative for printing this difficult material without any pre-treatment.

This ink can be processed well on fast running pad printing equipment. As it is a 1 component ink TP/PP-A has limited resistances against chemicals, water and hand sweat and so is mostly used for promotional articles or disposables such as measuring cups or syringes. For higher resistance we recommend TP 300 with special additive FX 209 and TP 219 Hardener.
