Robust 2C Screen Printing ink for Metals and Plastics

Our two-component solvent-based screen printing inks Series 640 and Series 640 silicone-free are excellent for versatile, high-quality applications on numerous metals and plastics. Both variants impress with brilliant gloss, excellent chemical resistance and superb weathering properties.

The universal, highly pigmented, and outdoor-resistant Series 640 was specifically developed for critical applications in the high-end technical field, for printing signs and wayfinding systems, as well as for the decoration of beverage crates.

On the other hand, the highly thermostable Series 640 silicone-free is optimal for automotive or in demanding technical applications, as its modern silicone-free formulation makes it ideal for overprinting, overcoating, or overlaying.
