Resumen:
Una pyme holandesa ha desarrollado un nuevo método para aplicar un código permanente en superficies de plástico. La tinta de codificación se aplica mediante una impresora de chorro de tinta, con posterior sinterización fotónica mediante flash de xenón. Debido a una reacción fototérmica, la tinta forma un compuesto homogéneo con el sustrato y hace que el código sea imborrable. El código no puede borrarse sin que afecte a la superficie. La empresa busca socios interesados en establecer acuerdos de cooperación técnica y comercial para aplicar la tecnología patentada en sus productos y procesos.

Details

Tittle:
Method to apply an indelible code on plastic substrates.
Summary:
A Dutch SME developed a new method to apply an indelible code on plastics substrates. The coding ink is applied by ink jet printing and further photonic sintered by means of a xenon flash. Because of a photo-thermic reaction the ink forms a homogeneous compound with the substrate, making the code indelible.
The company is looking for partners that are interested in technical and commercial cooperation for the application of this patented technology in their products or processes.
Description:
A Dutch SME, specialised in developing solutions for the application of UV technology, developed a method to apply an indelible code on plastic substrates.
There are several methods to apply a coding and marking on plastics of e.g. packaging, articles, etc.
Conventional coding and marking inks are based on a binder and pigment or dye. By solvent treatment the binder will be solved and the marking can be removed. This makes it possible to remove the printed expiring date and print, a new, incorrect date on the article.
Another method to apply an indelible code on a substrate is by laser printing whereby a laser engraves a print.
This company developed a new method to put an indelible code on plastics substrates. The coding ink is applied by ink jet printing and further photonic sintered by means of a xenon flash. Because of a photo-thermic reaction the ink forms a homogeneous compound with the substrate, making the code indelible.
In accordance with this process the print is not on the substrate, but in the substrate. So the code cannot be removed without affecting the substrate.

This method uses a low cost xenon flash lamp instead of an expensive laser. Furthermore the xenon flash method gives a print with much better contrast then a laser.
The xenon flash sensitive ink cures in less than 1/100 of a second.

The company is looking for partners that are interested in technical and commercial cooperation for the application of this patented technology in their products or processes.
