MATERIAL: PLASTIC FILM
Flow wrappers, bags, and pouches are commonly used for consumer packaged goods including confectionery, snack foods and bakery products. Flow wrappers are used through and flow wrap films are intended for packaging soft or flexible products individually or in multi-packs and are used to wrap items such as candy bars, ice cream bars, brownies, popsicles, cookies, muffins, protein bars and even medical devices and industrial parts. Most often flow wrap films are simple single-layer polypropylene film.
The T602K ink, with a 2-5 second dry time, is an excellent choice for most plastic films. The T602K ink also has a decap time/print idle time of up to 20 hours, reducing the chance of the solvent drying out and ink becoming unusable if stored or left out on the line uncapped.

The T801K ink, with a 1-2 second dry time, can also be used to print on plastic films. The T801K ink provides sharper contrast and a finer line quality for an extra crisp clear print.

The T602K and T801K inks come in an easy to insert and change-out XL cartridge, with 40% more ink than the starter-sized, short run ink cartridge that comes free with all TC12 TIJ printers.

The Redimark TC12 thermal inkjet printer – for date, lot, and batch coding – works best on mostly flat surfaces with well-defined edges like folding cartons or paperboard boxes. The TC12 allows you to get the code exactly where you need it with an easy-to-adjust print head and specialized print features, including the ability to flip the code upside down and start printing from a set distance from the detected edge.
