Coloured Inks

Linx offers a range of general-purpose coloured inks that give outstanding performance on most common materials. These Linx inks are therefore ideal for most general external packaging applications. Each of these Linx inks has slightly different performance characteristics to provide a range of options.

Linx does not manufacture inks or solvents for any other supplier. Our fluids are tested extensively during their development, and are manufactured according to strict specifications, resulting in a high level of quality assurance. There is ample evidence that the use of non-Linx inks or solvents in Linx printers can affect printer reliability and lead to costly repairs and production line downtime.
