Domino supporting fight against COVID-19


Domino Printing Services’ new fast-drying, high-contrast, ethanol-based ink is the latest component in a range of specialist coding and marking solutions supporting the fight against COVID-19.

Developed for use in Domino’s Gx-Series range of high-quality, thermal inkjet (TIJ) printers, BK119 is food-packaging safe, and adheres to EuPIA’s Good Manufacturing Practice protocols, making it suitable for printing on medical devices and personal protective equipment.

The new food packaging ink is now being used by manufacturers of particle-filtering respirator face masks produced to protect frontline workers during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“BK119 highlights Domino’s ongoing commitment to helping manufacturers through COVID-19 and beyond,” says Volker Watzke, EU Medical Devices Sector Manager, Domino. 

“We are pleased to be able to support the supply of significant volumes of face masks, COVID-19 test kits and other PPE globally by rapidly developing and adapting both products and consumables to meet the demands of our customers.”

James Gibbins, product manager – fluids, Domino, said: “Both respirator face masks and surgical masks have played a key role in the global fight against COVID-19.

“In the last year, we have seen a significant rise in demand for these products, with many manufacturers producing them for the very first time.

“Respirator face masks are classified as personal protective equipment, while surgical masks fall under the category of medical devices – both are subject to compulsory coding requirements within the countries in which they are sold.

“The capability and expertise to apply the necessary safety and quality codes are crucial, both for legislative compliance and consumer safety.”
