Linx Contrasting Inks is a wide group of pigmented products which deliver vivid contrasted print across a range of substrates. Substrates includes rubbers, plastics (especially PVC and PE), as well as metals, glass and other materials. Printed codes will not fade for years. It makes these Linx Contrasting inks ideal for coding and marking products that will be stored outside. Linx pigmented inks are also resistant to heat and chemical splashes. It makes them perfect for industrial coding.

Linx pigmented inks are used globally for coding and marking products such as:

  • Cabling
  • Pipe extrusions
  • Parts marking (e.g. automotive and aerospace)
  • Packaging

Some Linx pigmented inks can be run in our full range of ink jet printers, whilst others require the Linx 7900 Spectrum printer. The Linx 7900 Spectrum printer offers the most reliable printing solution for pigmented inks, that is both easy to use and delivers consistent performance.

Linx does not manufacture inks or solvents for any other supplier. Linx 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.
