Applications for OS490
The OS490 ink is suitable for printing on acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), polyvinylchloride (PVC), polycarbonate, and polyester. This ink was specifically formulated for polyvinylchloride (PVC), polyethylene (PE), cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) wire and cable, ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) foam materials, and high molecular weight polyethylene (HMWPE) automotive parts and building materials. Wire and cable can be inkjet coded immediately after high-temperature extrusion (typically 200°C / 400°F) to achieve the best adhesion and transfer resistance. Other typical applications for this ink include: dark-colored plastic & glass bottles, metals cans, plastic rigid containers rubber, flexible tubing, PVC pipes.
This ink can withstand pre & post-processes as long as when printing the substrate is clean, dry and 1-2 minute curing is acceptable.
