First low-migration UV screen printing ink for PE/PP

The manufacturing of sensitive products such as foodstuffs or cosmetic packaging requires utmost awareness. In order to satisfactorily meet the requirements of such a demanding process, UltraPack UVFP, by virtue of its low migration formulation, minimizes the risk of subsequent transfer from the outer decoration through the substrate, and into the contents.

Switch-it! The alternative to OEM inkjet inks

"Switch It!" by Marabu offers a real alternative to OEM printing ink. Simply replace the original ink of your printer with one of Marabu‘s digital printing inks and benefit from many advantages. 

Hot Stamping and Screen Printing for Glass Decoration

Marabu has developed UV-curable primers which simulate the gloss of precious metals. This combination of screen printing and hot stamping results in high gloss metallic effects which are absolutely comparable to precious metals, at a much lower price.

Direct printing on plastic packaging

First impressions can make all the difference when it comes to product packaging. Direct printing guarantees a high-quality image and strengthens the distinctive character of each product.

Pad printing inks

Enhanced and fine-tuned over decades, pad printing has become a firm fixture in the printing landscape. And it’s not surprising: this technique offers unique solutions for some of the toughest surfaces. Suitable for a wide range of applications and substrates, this versatile process ensures first-rate results for decoration, marking, and identification.

Screen printing inks

Marabu has long played a key role in shaping screen printing technology. Our innovative ideas and products combined with our in-depth knowledge of printing processes have been instrumental in driving this technology forward. All over the world, Marabu is synonymous with high-quality inks, manufactured to the highest standards.

Pad printing on shot glasses

Pad printing is typically used in scenarios where other print methods struggle to deliver the desired results: precise, delicate details on raised or sunken surfaces. In this video we want to show you one of its various possibilities. This time on shot glasses with a little nice beach scenario ;-)

TUTORIAL: How to do a correct ink mixing

Marabu would like to give you a simple but very important hint: No matter which components you have to mix in your ink, make sure that you stir them well and long enough, at least for 2-3 min. The video shows what happens if you don’t mix UV screen printing inks for glass and the necessary adhesion modifier long enough. Left side is stirred too short and right side is stirred correct. The cross-hatch tape test of left side shows bad adhesion of ink, no abbression resistance, no chemical resistance and bad ink leveling. With the right side everything is fine and this only because the ink mixture was stirred correct.

Pad printing is typically used in scenarios where other print methods struggle to deliver the desired results: precise, delicate details on raised or sunken surfaces. In this video we want to show you one of its various possibilities. We print with Marabu's ink system TampaTex TPX which was originally conceived as an ink for printing on textiles, for example for washing instructions on T-shirts. Experience has shown that TampaTex TPX also achieves excellent adhesion on many other materials, such PP, PA, PU, some TPE and EVA substrates, plus neoprene and imitation leather. It is also suitable for use in screen printing.
