What we say about Printcolor 712
If you’re printing on PP all day long, you won’t what to slow up production with flaming or fussy chemical wipes.  Especially as no one will want to pay  for your extra time!  But many printers feel that if they don’t pre-treat they’re only doing half a job, and risk a poor result.  Printcolor 712 is not a compromise.  It is  formulated to do just one thing and that is to produce excellent print adhesion on untreated PP even in high wear applications like car parts, cosmetic containers and flower pots.

The good oil from our trade print room

  • This is a really easy ink to use, it runs well in either open ink well or closed cup machines.
  • Release form the pad is excellent, doesn’t usually need air blowing on the pad before print.
  • Super fast drying – you don’t really need a heat drying tunnel it’s so fast, just let the product air dry.
  • Adhesion is amazing, it really does just work.
  • Gloss level is very low, it produces a very matt print.
  • Comes in metal cans rather than Printcolors’ excellent plastic ones. Apparently it’s got stuff in it that is incompatible with a PE container.
