Product overview

MRX-HF ink is environmentally friendly 2 pack type ink series that does not intentionally use halogen compounds(chlorine Cl, bromine Br)in raw materials. It is suitable for wide range of decorative printing thanks to its excellent adhesion to hard coated plastic plate and post-processing properties such as cutting.

  • Do not use solvents and catalysts other than the designated ones because of the possibility of contamination with halogen compounds.
  • Please check the squeegee rubber, emulsion, materials and substrates before use, as they may contain halogen compounds.
  • Checking before production: 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: 24 months from production date, unopened

Safety

  • UN No.: 1210
  • UN Classification: Class 3 Flammable Liquids (Flash point is over 23 Degree C)

Handling
