Multichem offers two types of highlighter inks – Pigmented and Dye-based. Both types are copy-fax compatible. All inks are EN71 Part 3 and ASTM D-4236 approved. EN71 Part 9 grades and 1:1 concentrates are also available for our pigmented inks (minimum order quantity applies)
Pigmented – Lightfast, water resistant and suitable for free ink systems.
Dye-based – Economic with superb fluorescence. Low light fastness in yellow & green and not water resistant. Dye-based inks are highly alkaline.
1:1 concentrate – Take one part by weight of the concentrate an dilute it with one part by weight of water. The water MUST NOT be contaminated with bacteria. Microbiological contamination of the ink must be prevented.
Reservoirs – Polyester or polypropylene reservoirs are recommended. Acetate reservoirs are not suitable for dye based inks.
Barrel Head/End Plug – Polyolefin types are recommended but PVC is also compatible. Styrenics give poor shelf life but otherwise operate well.
We strongly recommend you test your components for compatibility with our inks.
