TP 340 Series

Solvent Based Pad Printing Ink Range, 1- and (alternatively) 2-Component


Pad printing ink range TP 340 is suitable for printing on various thermoplastics, especially for technical-industrial applications. Main substrates are ABS, SAN, ASA, polystyrene (PS, rigid PVC, PMMA (“acrylic glass”) and polycarbonate (PC).
In addition, and only if processed as 2-component system, TP 340 inks can be printed on some coated surfaces,
metals and copolymers.


• Pad inks TP 340 are solvent based pad printing inks. They can be processed as 1-component and (alternatively) as 2-component ink with hardener
• In line with current safety requirements pad printing inks TP 340 have been formulated with especially environmentally compatible raw materials. TP 340 inks do not contain aromatics, butyl glycolate (GB-Ester), cyclohexanone, Bisphenol A (BPA) and also no polycyclic aromatic
hydrocarbons (PAH). Exception: AB bronzes 75/AB to 79/AB (contain aromatics) and black colours N50 and 65 (PAHcontaining pigments).
• If the criteria to obtain the GS mark according to GS specification AfPS GS 2014:01 PAH have to be met, the following applies:
Colour shade black: Only colour shades N58, 68 or 68-HD-NT are suitable. Bronze colours: Only MG bronzes are suitable (available upon request) Thinner/Additives Only those products marked with symbol  in this data sheet are suitable.
• Processed as 1-component ink TP 340 dries physically, as 2-component ink physically chemicallyreactive
• TP 340 inks exhibit excellent printing properties, no matter if printing speeds are very slow or extremely fast. TP 340 prints show a glossy finish.
• Good initial adhesion is achieved on many substrates within only a few minutes.
• TP 340 prints show extremely good abrasion resistance and a very good resistance against ethanol (alcohol) and benzines 1). TP 340 also exhibits excellent resistances against diesel fuel, hand cream 2) and hand sweat 3).
• Processed as 2-component system TP 340 inks will also show adhesion or increased adhesion on difficult substrates.
• Ink range TP 340 is suitable for outdoor applications.
• Note: Because of the variety of substrates, pre-tests are essential. It is also advised to check efficiency of possibly required pre-treatment of substrates (cleaning/degreasing, flame/corona/plasma treatment) or maybe even post-treatment (flame-drying).
