Needham Ink Technologies, a leading innovator in industrial printing solutions, is thrilled to announce the launch of its ground breaking new range of MEK-Free Continuous Inkjet (CIJ) inks. This exciting development marks a significant milestone in the company's commitment to sustainability, safety, and performance excellence in the industrial printing industry.

The MEK-Free CIJ ink range from Needham Ink Technologies is designed to meet the ever-growing demand for environmentally friendly and safer printing solutions. It is a testament to the company's dedication to reducing environmental impact and providing its customers with products that align with modern sustainability goals.

Key features and benefits of Needham Ink Technologies' MEK-Free CIJ ink range include:

  • MEK-Free Formulation: These inks do not contain Methyl Ethyl Ketone (MEK), a volatile organic compound (VOC) that can have harmful environmental and health effects. Eliminating MEK enhances workplace safety and reduces emissions.
  • Fast dry time: Our MEK-free inks have been formulated to provide the same drying time as MEK inks.
  • No drug precursors. The inks do not contain any MEK or Acetone. This enables them to be imported to countries which regulate products which contain these chemicals without any permits being required.
  • MEK free make-up. Not only are the inks MEK free, so are the make-up fluids.
  • Different colours: The range is not just limited to black ink, the range of MEK-Free inks are available in White and Yellow.
  • Outstanding Print Quality: Despite being MEK-Free, the inks maintain excellent print quality, ensuring crisp, clear codes and markings on various substrates, including plastics, metals, and paper.
  • Wide Application Range: Needham Ink Technologies' MEK-Free CIJ inks are suitable for various industrial printing applications, including food packaging, beverage labelling, pharmaceuticals, and electronics.
  • Sustainability and Compliance: These inks align with the company's commitment to sustainability and regulatory compliance, meeting industry standards for safety and environmental responsibility.

Steve Holmes, General Manager of Needham Ink Technologies, expressed his enthusiasm for this new product range, saying, "Our MEK-Free CIJ ink range is a testament to our commitment to innovation and sustainability. We believe this product will provide our customers with a safer and more environmentally responsible choice for their industrial printing needs, without compromising on quality."

Needham Ink Technologies' MEK-Free CIJ ink range is now available for order, and the company is ready to work closely with customers to provide tailored solutions that meet their unique printing requirements.
