Security UV Readable Inks

Linx Security UV Readable Inks have been developed for discreet coding and marking applications such as anti-counterfeiting or internal traceability. They are almost invisible in normal light but fluoresce under UV light. These Linx UV readable inks are available in different colours and different solvent bases to offer more choice.

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.
