TP 313 Series

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


Pad printing ink range for printing on various thermoplastics, especially polystyrene (PS) copolymers such as ABS, SAN and polymer blends like PC/ABS. In addition, for printing on PMMA (“acrylic glass”), polycarbonate (PC), rigid PVC. As 2-component ink suitable for some polyester materials. After pre-treatment (flame-treatment) also for polyamide (PA), after pre-treatment (flame, corona, plasma) also for polypropylene (PP) and polyethylene (PE).
TP 313 inks are used for a variety of technical-industrial applications, toys and promotional articles.


• Pad inks TP 313 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 313 have been formulated with especially environmentally compatible raw materials. TP 313 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 (PAH- containing 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)
Only those products marked with symbol  in this data sheet are suitable.
• Processed as 1-component ink TP 313 dries physically, as 2-component ink physically chemically-reactive
• TP 313 inks dry quickly and result in a glossy finish. TP 313 inks can be processed on a variety of pad printing machines, from various flat systems to quick running rotation systems.
• Processing as 2-component ink will further increase ink adhesion properties on difficult substrates such as pre-treated PP/PE.
• This ink system shows very good abrasion resistance. This resistance can be increased further by adding abrasion additives.
• TP 313 prints exhibit good resistances against alcohol and benzines. These resistances are even better, when processed as 2-component system.
• Ink range TP 313 is suitable for outdoor applications.
• TP 313 inks are certified according to USP Medical Class VI. They can be used for printing onto medical devices
• 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).
