Coding and Marking Solutions for Rigid Container Printing.Polyethylene (PE) and high density polyethylene (HDPE) are common plastics used for rigid packaging. with relatively low surface energy Printing on plastic containers can be difficult but can be done easily with a solution.
The sample lab can provide various codes. to you on your plastic packaging using various technologies. They will recommend the most suitable technology and help you make an informed decision before you invest in an encryption solution.
We are here to offer solutions for product coding that help fight COVID-19 and other health issues with printers and lasers. You can print directly on plastic bottles and other plastic containers of disinfectants and cleaners.
There are two main printing technologies. For printing on plastic packaging: continuous inkjet and laser marking.
Continuous Inkjet (CIJ) Printing on Plastics
CIJ is an ink coding technology which is suitable for curved surfaces and high speed lines. Excellent code durability is achieved by matching the ink formulation to the plastic type and product use environment. With over 640 application-specific liquids, we offer a wide range of ink colors that can provide a complete solution for printing on plastic bottles. Plastic pipes and tubes, plastic caps, plastic egg boxes and CIJ plastic bags are ideal solution for lot number coding and marking. Expiration date of plastic buckets, bottles and plastic containers
Laser marking on plastic
Lasers can provide high-resolution permanent codes directly on plastic bottles or onto labels by enabling material replacement. various plastic materials There are different reactions to fiber lasers. A discoloration or etching effect is generally observed. However, laser encoding is limited. The color palette provides limited contrast on most plastics. Fiber laser systems are the ideal solution for marking on plastic pipes, plastic tubs, plastic bottle caps and plastic automotive parts made from a variety of durable materials such as High Density Polyethylene (HDPE), Nylon, Poly. Levinyl Chloride (PVC)
