V476 ink is for the Videojet standard 1000 line printers and V512 for the 1000 line ultra high speed models.
Codes produced with the inks are designed to provide a color change from dark to light red when exposed to heat and moisture during the retort process.
The color change occurs after the material has been retorted for several minutes at 116~121°C allowing processors to determine whether an item has been properly exposed to the retort process. It can also reduce the bleeding of code compared to thermochromic ink.
This ink is primary used for V476 and V521 inks are processed food containers such as metal cans, glass jars, flexible pouches, plastic bowls and trays.
