Linx launches returnable black ink for glass bottles
Reused bottles increase sustainability
Linx Printing Technologies Inc. launched a new returnable ink: Linx Black bottling ink 1068. The ink enables the reuse of glass bottles in the drinks industry, the company says. Once the ink has been used for printing batch and date codes, the bottles are returned. The ink is then removed in the bottle-washing process, enabling new codes to be printed onto them ahead of reuse. The Linx bottling ink clearly prints onto glass in cold-fill bottling and in humid environments, the company says. The ink also resists removal when subjected to pasteurization, ice water immersion, refrigeration or when stored in a warehouse for long periods of time. The marking codes on beverages reduces the likelihood of product recall, it adds.
