The product meets the highest automotive industry standards of major original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). Its applications include car emblems, aluminum interior trim, glass touch screens, injection-molded plastic parts, instrument panels, buttons, and more.
"Regarding the application of Marabu ink on cars, the processes involved in transfer printing include: transfer printing/transfer printing + spray painting/transfer printing + spray painting + laser engraving. The Marabu ink products available for this purpose include: Tampa® TPL/TPU/TPT/TPY/TPR."
"In the application of ink on display/glass screens, it is generally required to meet technical standards such as transparency, uniformity, and impedance. The corresponding ink products from Marabu include: Mara® MGL/Masia 8151-O."
"In general, FIM plastic parts require color consistency (hidden), uniformity and transparency of translucent colors, high impedance (>10^10Ω). Through this forum, Marabu has introduced its flagship product for the automotive industry, the FIM ink MPX, to industry partners for the first time. It can be used on different film materials such as PC/PET/PMMA/PP/PA, and has excellent flexibility and abrasion resistance. It does not require adhesive and can be directly injected with PC/PC+ABS. Among them, the black non-conductive ink MPX181 is suitable for IME technology and has excellent printing adaptability."
"Masia® 9104 is a dual-curing protective varnish suitable for various substrate surfaces such as PC/ABS/PMMA/pre-treated PP/uncured UV film/ink layer/aluminum plate. It provides excellent high-gloss/matte leveling effect, adjustable fineness/glossiness, and perfect combination of flexibility/chemical resistance (sunscreen/acetone/insecticides...) and mechanical performance. It offers possibilities for different combinations of glossiness and printing textures and provides a low-cost solution for post-cured films."
"In addition, Marabu also introduced ink applications on "smart" skins/textiles, and high-coverage opaque inks printed on lightweight translucent TPO materials."
