Ink formulation & Manufacturing

In addition to its own brand of inks, CMS offers customers a service to develop and manufacture inks to their specific requirements.  Our expertise is principally with industrial inkjet inks but not limited to that.  If you need a custom formulated ink, contact us to discuss your project.

Concerning industrial ink jet inks, we have made formulas for CIJ (Continuous Ink Jet), DOD (Drop On Demand), TIJ (Thermal Ink Jet) and Hi Res inks for piezo heads.

The ink we have manufactured uses multiple resin systems, the resin system is determined by the substrate being printed and the required adhesion. The inks may use dyes or pigments depending on the colour and contrast required.  Ink by be air dried or dried by applying heat or using low or high energy UV.  We make the following types of inks:

  • Food Grade & Food Packaging
  • RoHS compliant
  • Heavy Metal Free
  • Pigmented ink high contrast for cables and pipes
  • Thermochromic inks that change colour
  • General purpose black and coloured inks
  • Washable inks for returnable bottles
  • Alcohol resistant

Working with machine manufacturers, we supply either in bulk packaging or in finish packages to their specific design.  No order too small or too big, we ship anything from one bottle to 40’ containers. You can collect your goods or we can even take care of the shipping to distributors or end users around the world.

We have a strict quality control procedure and ensure full batch traceability all through the lifetime of our products.
