Kodak's new invisible ink improves security, creativity with packaging
Among the many innovations visitors will see at Packaging & Label World is Kodak's new award-winning Nexpress Red Fluorescing Dry Ink Solution, which helps printers provide increased security and fraud protection on packaging, direct mail, documents and promotional materials.

This innovative ink is clear when printed on top of images and graphics, and is virtually invisible. When it is illuminated with an ultraviolet light source, however, it fluoresces a red colour. The intensity of the red can be controlled by the amount of Red Fluorescing Dry Ink that is printed on the page.

Packaging & Label World is a special market focus of Print World 2012: The world of shorter-run printing, Nov. 17-19, Direct Energy Centre, downtown Toronto.

Kodak Nexpress Red Fluorescing Dry Ink is another addition to the Fifth Imaging Solutions portfolio. Red Fluorescing Dry Ink is applied inline, and is ideal wherever visible barcodes are used for workflow automation, mailing systems and MIS connectivity.

Red Fluorescing Dry Ink removes the need to post-finish trim or create the design workarounds that have traditionally been used to eliminate or minimize intrusion of the barcode for end customers. It is also a cost-effective way to add validation features to a variety of documents. Users can even add hidden messages to photos, graphics and documents.

Like all Nexpress Fifth Imaging Unit Solutions, Red Fluorescing creates prints that are recyclable. The Dry Ink does not require any special de-inking process and uses no volatile organic compounds (VOCs).

This year’s InterTech Technology Award marks the third time Kodak has received Printing Industries of America recognition for its Fifth Imaging Unit Solutions. In 2005, Kodak was recognized for the initial launch of the Fifth Imaging Unit Solutions; in 2009, for its addition of the new Dimensional Printing Solution; and in 2012, for Red Fluorescing ink.
