Marabu - Medical products ink
In the field of medical consumables and medical devices, ink is widely used. Marrabu is a leading manufacturer of pad printing and screen printing inks in the medical industry. With extremely fine printing effects and high safety standards, it is favored by many customers in the medical industry and holds over 20% market share in the global medical pad printing ink market.
Marabu inks can be applied to medical materials and devices such as syringes, medication dispensers, medical catheters, ABS/PP/stainless steel/injection-molded substrate medical device casings, and brackets. Because they are used in the human body, some applications strictly require inks that have passed biocompatibility and other medical-grade tests. Of course, adhesion and scratch resistance are the fundamental requirements for ink's basic performance. Marabu provides comprehensive medical ink printing solutions, including solvent-based pad printing inks, UV screen printing inks, and water-based digital inks.
Pad printing is a process that transfers patterns from a silicone-based transfer pad to 3D objects. It can achieve precise printing of characters and patterns with an accuracy of up to 0.0003 inches and is easy to operate, environmentally friendly, and highly efficient, making it very suitable for the medical industry.
