Light Fastness

A professional answer is required

The most commonly used method of measuring light fastness of a printed material is to expose it to a special artificial light with a spectrum similar to the sun light. Material sample will be exposed together with a special wool counter-sample printed with 8 grades of Blue dye (Blue Wool Scale).

SWISS ORDINANCE

Swiss Ordinance 817.023.21 for Packaging Inks

The Swiss Federal Department of Home Affairs (DFI) adopted in March 2008 an amendment to the Ordinance of 23 November 2005 on Materials and Objects in Contact with Food (SR 817.023.21). It entered into force on 4 January 2010 and lays down the obligation for packaging inks to be manufactured only with the authorized substances. Permitted substances are defined as those listed in Annex 2 Lists I and II and in Annex 10, December 2020.

The lists in the Ordinance simply states that the substances may be used in the manufacture of printing inks. To ensure safety in accordance with the law, the migration limits for substances must not be exceeded for final packaging. Guides of Good Practice for the manufacture and printing of printing inks should be followed.

Substances listed with status 'B' may be used, provided that the final packaging is in compliance with the requirements of the Ordinance, i.e. the migration of the listed substances cannot be detected using a valid and official analytical method. The migration should not be greater than 0.01 mg / kg (10 ppb).

INX carried out a review of the raw materials used in the products below to determine their status with respect to the Swiss Ordinance and found that the products below meet the Swiss Ordinance Annex 10.

Accordingly, it does not automatically mean that the product or substance is toxicologically suitable to be used for printing inks for all types of food packaging.

MAIN FEATURES
DT8 has brilliant and vivid colors that allow obtaining a high wide and deep color gamut. Its formulation gives the product good drying properties both on fabrics and paper; as it can easily pass through the fiber, it is the best choice to print on two-sided fabrics.
By transfer printing too, DT8 grants the best color release at standard conditions (200/210°C–35/45 sec). It has an excellent wettability and very good drying properties, so it is suitable for fast long-run productions, without the constant interruptions for cleaning procedures.

APPLICATION
DT8 is recommendable for 100% polyester fabrics or in blends with different fibers (lycra, viscose, cotton, acrylic) with a minimum percentage of 70%. It can also be used on any substrate (alu, wood, ceramic, glass, etc.) usually unsuitable for the sublimation process, after doing a pretreatment with polyester-polyamide resins. DT8 is specifically formulated for Soft-Signage and Flags even if it is suitable for sportswear, technical sports equipment (snowboard, ski, wakeboard, bike frame, etc), garments, ceramics, wood, gadgets, and decorations.

THERMO-FIXING CONDITIONS

Thermo-fixing can occur by means of a press or a calendar.
The temperature and time varies depending on the chemical-physical characteristics of the substrate being printed or onto which the print is being transferred. For transfer printing, This ink works well with lightweight to heavyweight transfer paper. For an even brighter result we recommend washing the flag or banner prior to installation.

The product is ready for use.
Keep this ink at room temperature at least 24h before use.

Set the operation conditions as follows:
- temperature range: 20-25°C
- relative humidity range: 40-60 RH %

By direct printing, use this ink on pretreated fabrics only.
Printed fabric is fixed at a calender or a flat press at a temperature of 200-210°C for 35/45 sec. When fixed, fabric is ready for use.
Washing is suggested in order to remove chemical additives used for pretreatment and the unfixed color waste.
Preliminary test is recommended in order to set the best operative parameters (T°C/t sec) and to achieve the desired result.

Read more about this product, you will find useful info and technical details about it, as theTemperature exposure and Jetting, Storage conditions, Shelf Life, and more.

TEMPERATURE EXPOSURE & JETTING

Inks were optimized to jet in equipment operating at 25°C. Changes in ambient temperature and controlled temperature settings affect the viscosity of the ink and therefore the accuracy of drop formation and dot placement.Prolonged exposure to temperatures above 55°C should be avoided as long term exposure to high temperatures can induce pigment agglomeration.

INK STORAGE AND SHELF LIFE

These inks should be stored between 20° - 25°C (68° - 77°F). When stored properly inks have a 18 month shelf life.
