Caution

  • Adhesion test must be done before printing as quality of plastics may differ depending on manufacturers or lots. It is also recommended to wipe surface of the printing part with alcohol to prevent defective print due to static electricity and insufficient adhesion due to plasticizer and additive floating.
  • 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.: Not classified in the definition
  • UN Classification: Not classified in the definition

Handling

  • 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.
