INKS & DYES

Industrial and retail printers print graphics and labels that are used for a number of different reasons. Whether it is to display a warning notice about hidden electrical cables, where the notice needs to be brightly coloured and resistant to UV and weathering. Or perhaps the labels needs to accurately represent the brand of the product along with information on the product. We can see how this can go wrong sometimes, as you can see in this blog about Coca-Cola.

The colour of a final printed product often begins with managing the colour of the inks or dyes used. Measuring the colour of inks, for printing, and dyes, also for printing as in the textiles industry, should be done in an objective and accurate way.

We can solve the following challenges with inks and dyes:

  • Measure the colour of inks and dyes
  • Control the colour of final printed products
  • Detect adulteration and contamination of inks
  • Reduce debates around colour between customers and suppliers
  • Improve printing production with objective colour measurement

The following instruments have been designed to measure inks and dyes:

CM-3600A SPECTROPHOTOMETER

  • Measure the colour of powders, liquids and solids
  • Detect the presence of UV and OBA material
  • Determine adulteration and contamination
  • Reduce debates about colour between customers and suppliers

CM-3700A SPECTROPHOTOMETER

  • Measure the colour of powders, liquids and solids
  • Detect the presence of UV and OBA material
  • Determine adulteration and contamination
  • Reduce debates about colour between customers and suppliers

Our instruments cover a wide number of applications and we are always looking to learn about new applications. If you would like to alter an application for the better or do not see the details of your application listed clearly here then please Contact us.
