Introduction of
Color Guide


  • Make sure to add 5% of SM-708 additive to the ink before use.
  • Do not use solvents and catalysts other than the designated ones because of the possibility of contamination with halogenated compounds.
  • Please check the squeegee rubber, emulsion, materials and substrates before use, as they may contain halogen compounds.
  • Checking before commercialization: Adhesion and resistance properties may change due to differences in substrates, processes, printing and drying conditions. Be sure to check the adhesiveness and resistance properties before mass production printing.
  • Ink shelf life: 12 months from production date, unopened.


  • UN No.: Not classified in the definition
  • UN Classification: Not classified in the definition


  • Use safety gloves and eyeglasses to protect skin and eyes. If the ink comes in contact with skin, wash with soap and plenty of water (or lukewarm water) and consult with a doctor.
  • Containers should be closed tightly after use and stored in a cool and dark place.
  • SDS is available upon request. Please request a copy and read it carefully before handling the products.

What are the meanings of X and Q used in the ink names such as IPX, INQ, FMX, etc.?

X and Q are used to designate isophorone-free inks.

What is non-conductive black ink?

Non-Conductive Black Ink is an ink that has a high electrical resistance of the printed ink layer, and has both a function that is difficult for electricity to pass through and a high opaque black color. The high electrical resistance (low conductivity) prevents malfunctions and failures of electronic components, etc., caused by electric current flowing through the printed ink layer. Furthermore, its high opacity makes it suitable for printing on flat panels and smartphone displays that require light-shielding properties.
