Features & Specifications
An ethanol-based ink formula, OS496’s blue color allows users to create high-contrast markings that appear particularly vibrant on light-colored surfaces. Designed with food-grade properties, OS496 is ideal for printing on food packaging. Within the food production industry, many packaging forms have printed surfaces that come into direct contact with food products. Common examples include:
- Flavor pouches placed in salad bags, dry noodle boxes, soup packets, etc.
- Paper instructions/coupons
- Tea bags
- Dry bags of coffee, sugar, and other powdered foods
- Flexible films that cover microwavable foods
Given that these materials are liable to directly touch food, it’s essential that food packaging companies mark them using food-grade ink. With a formula like OS496, food producers can safely mark product packaging with vibrant codes and text while in complete compliance with food packaging regulations.
