Needham Ink Technologies has 60 years of experience with ink and the coding and marking industry. Our dedicated research and development is constantly innovating new formulations of inks from CIJ ink, DOD ink, TIJ ink to Wide format and other speciality inks. All of our inks are made in Britain and are manufactured at our headquarters in Whitchurch, Shropshire, UK.

Water-Based TIJ Ink

Our water-based thermal inkjet inks are an increasingly popular option due to their environmental friendliness and their application versatility. Water-based TIJ inks are specially designed for the highest-quality marks, with strong adhesion, capable of printing onto surfaces of absorbent materials like wood, cardboard and outer boxes.

The range of TIJ inks are for use in HP26 and HP45 cartridges and are available in Black, Red and Blue.

What are the advantages of water-based TIJ ink?

Cost Effective: Aqueous inks use a carrier comprising water and organic co-solvents, which are low-cost compounds. Thus, water-based thermal inkjet ink can deliver attractive economic benefits.

Environmentally Friendly: Water-based ink formulations are kinder and limit safety risks for operators as well as end users, and for printing on food packaging. Products printed using these inks can also be widely recycled.

Blue CIJ Ink

 

BLUE-PIGMENTED CIJ INK 

Our chemists at our research and development facility in Newquay, Cornwall, UK, have developed a blue-pigmented CIJ ink that withstands the vulcanisation process of rubber.

Our customer had a specific requirement that the ink used by their CIJ printer could withstand intense heat and the curing process of the material.

The blue pigmented CIJ ink that we developed is capable of withstanding the vulcanisation process, leaving clear and legible marks afterwards. We are also able to adapt this ink so it is compatible with any make of CIJ printer.

The typical application for our blue-pigmented CIJ ink is for rubber, tyres, hose and cables that undergo the vulcanisation process or are exposed to extreme heat

We are also currently developing a white alternative with the same characteristics.

Low-MEK Ink Range

We have formulated a range of ink to contain less than 70% MEK which can be used in a wide range of CIJ printers on the market.

We can make low-MEK inks to be compatible with ANY continuous inkjet printer upon request. All our low-MEK inks are packaged in bottles identical to the OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) to ensure that the is no confusion between inks and make-up and they fit seamlessly into your existing CIJ printer.

We have developed a range of colours also and our low-MEK ink range currently is available in Black, White, Yellow, Red and Blue. Other colours are available on request.
