Tin Print

Our Tin Print ink series was developed for plate printing on white primer varnish coating metal material or on blank metal material.

After thermal drying (150┬░-170┬░ C. in one pass of 10 min.) the printing ink stands out for its relatively high surface hardness and scratch resistance.

With this ink system a final varnishing wet-on-dry or wet-in-wet is possible. The range of publications stretches from technical packaging such as oil- and coffee-tins till locking tin discs (Twist-off or screw shutter).


  • Very good run ability
