Siltech offers a range of colour-change technologies including inks which change colour permanently when heated. These come in several sensitivities and several different colours. They are used extensively for indicating, marking, and monitoring.
Good news for label makers!
We now proudly offer a range of inks for producing thermal labels which can save greatly on costs and introduce colour and flexibility. These are called
Thermosil inks are designed to be imaged by a standard direct-thermal printer, and will behave in the same way as thermally-sensitive paper, label stock, board, film, etc. But they offer major advantages:
Thermosil is cheaper than direct-thermal substrate;
Thermosil is free of Bis-phenol A;
Thermosil is water resistant;
Thermosil is supplied in standard white to black, but is also available in other colours;
Thermosil is also available in coloured tints with a contrasting coloured image;
Thermosil use will lead to better quality labels as the “lift” of standard printing inks is better than on thermal paper;
Thermosil use will lead to improved cutter life.
Many label makers report savings of over 30% by using Thermosil. In times of recession, they are increasing their turnover at the same time as reducing costs.
Thermosil inks are easy to use. When printing your labels, simply use a print station on your flexo or gravure press for the patch of Thermosil and print at normal speeds. The patch is that part of the label where the variable information, (batch code, bar code, sell-by date, price, etc.) is to be placed, i.e. where the label is to be “overprinted”. It’s eco-friendly!
