Markem LP 8400 Story II

Markem LP 8400 Story II

I apologize for not keeping this blog up to date.  I thought I would have more time seeing that we are in a recession.  I just wanted to give an update as to where we are at with the testing on the new inks.  The testing is completed and our new inks tested better for fade resistance than the labels that were produced off of the Markem LP 8400.  As a company we were estatic that after two years we finally recieved the results we were trying to achieve.  The Markem LP 8400 was the only solution known to produce a colored label that could be outside for many many years.  There were no flexographics inks available to compete with this old technology.  We hired a chemist and put together a research team to find a solution for an outdoor colored label application.  After two years of testing and trying different things, we finally hit it.  We now offer a special outdoor flexographic ink that can withstand the rigors of the sun.  The customer was thrilled because their Markem printer was on its last legs and the company, Markem, was not supporting this equipment anymore.  I will talk more on this subject as time allows.  I believe I have a product that is unique in the industry that will have many applications, stay tuned.
