New Pigment Ink Withstands Extreme Temperatures

A stream of red lava can run as high as between 600 and 900 °C. And things can get even hotter in industrial settings — for example, in a furnace. Only very few inks for component-marking with ink jet printers can withstand these extreme temperatures. With this in mind, marking and coding specialist Paul Leibinger GmbH & Co. KG from Tuttlingen, Germany, has introduced a pigment ink to the market, which allows a clear typeface even at 1000 °C.

In a furnace where ceramic components for industrial applications harden — such as spark plugs, insulators and cutting tools — temperatures of up to 1000 °C are reached. For such applications, Paul Leibinger has developed a heat-resistant ink. It is designed for the inkjet printer JET3up PI — a printer that marks products with the so-called CIJ technology (Continuous Inkjet) without contact.
