New Non-Porous Ink Offers Darker Print and Longer Decap Times

Diagraph is now offering a newly formulated non-porous ink in an improved 45Si cartridge that will offer Thermal Jet Series technology users greater print quality on some of the most challenging non-porous substrates. Some of the enhancements that make the TJNPMX cartridge the go-to choice for tough non-porous applications include:

3x Darker Print

The new formulation found in the TJNPMX cartridge allows for print messages up to three times darker than the standard TJNPM non-porous ink offering. This allows for greater contrast and improved barcode scan-ability.

2x Greater Throw Distance

The improvements found in the 45Si cartridge allow for a print throw distance up to 3/8”, enabling manufacturers with low volume operations to consider the Thermal Jet Series technology solution as an alternative to traditional continuous inkjet (CIJ) solutions.

Extended Decap Times

The TJNPMX ink formulation combats a common issue found with HP Cartridge technology solutions – printheads that sit idle between prints tend to clog and need to be de-primed to get the print quality back to an acceptable standard. The new formulation allows for excellent decap times lasting up to several hours, assuring consistently high print quality over time.

Non-porous substrates that work well with the TJNPMX formulation include:






Glass Bottles


Aluminum Cans




Coated Paper


Metal Parts

Coated Cardboard

Plastic Bags

Bottle Caps

Coated Chipboard

Plastic Caps



Shrink Wrap
