Manufacturers of beauty products and household goods must decorate and mark containers, bottle closures, and smaller items like cream
jars and lipstick cases, as well as molded surfaces. For widely used substrates such as pre-treated polyethylene and polypropylene,
polystyrene, or glass, the ink must ensure particularly high opacity and resistance to packaged contents. Pad printing can be used on many different types of cosmetic items, such as: lotions, perfume bottles, compacts, lipstick tubes, etc. Print single or multi-color logos, contents and usage information on both sides of the container, eliminating the need for expensive labels.
Advantages of Pad Printing
Ink Savings: Pad printing transfers only a few microns of ink needed to print an image. No labels – less shipping weight. Money saved!
Flexibility: The pad can mold itself around the substrate getting into normally hard-to-reach places. This is especially useful in an industry of with such varying contours to its products.
Durability: Our inks are tested for durability by using standard adhesion protocols like tape and hatch tests, and can be post treated to maintain color fastness in outdoor environments.
Multicolor Print Speed: Since a thin layer of ink is deposited on the substrate, a second, third or fourth color can be printed immediately, no need for a drying station between layers of color.
Precision: Minimal amount of ink required allows for extremely fine and precise images, ideal for product decorating.
Custom Automation: Inline pre and post treatment, on-and off-loading, plus packaging systems available.
