This ink can be used in applications where Videojet's V496-D is being used. This ink is a direct replacement for V496-D, hence no flush is required. It is important however, that the printer being used is also certified food grade. The operating temperature is limited to 55 – 110 º F (13 – 55º C).
OS496 ink has a shelf life of 12 months from date of manufacture when stored at a temperature range of +35o F to +95o F (+2o C to +35o C). Prolonged exposures to temperatures outside these limits will shorten the ink shelf life. If there is a possibility that the ink has been frozen during shipping, bring to room temperature (+70o F to +75o F or 21o C to +24o C) and shake well before using.
