Flexographic Inks
Algene has a flexographic ink
(Definition: A quick drying, low viscosity ink based on volatile solvents, including water.)
for just about any application and any surface. We have inks for printing on uncoated boxes, clay and varnish coated boxes and even hard to print polyethylene plastic.
All the inks, except the yellow and orange colors, have USDA approval for food packaging. This does not include direct contact with food.

All inks are available in the basic colors and any GCMI or PMS colors.

If you have any special needs please don't hesitate to consult with us. We probably have an ink to do the job. If you plan to print bar codes let us know so we can recommend the right ink.

Algene ink is available in: pints, quarts, gallons, 5 gallon carboys, 30 and 55 gallon drums.
