This is increasingly important in the electronics and electrical industries.
Domino has recently developed a range of Continuous Ink Jet (CIJ) inks that are both heavy metal–free and also free of halogens, such as chlorine, that may be used to make the ink droplets conductive.
These inks are available in black and blue colours and offer important properties such as alcohol resistance. These inks avoid possible manufacturing process contamination as well as ensuring on-going compliance to RoHS and WEEE directives when components are coded with these inks. Increasingly such inks are mandatory for customers.
