Permanent Ink Stamp for Plastic

Posted by Matt Martin

When an application calls for marking on plastic, a permanent ink stamp can often be the best marking solution.

Permanent ink stamps for plastic applications are popular marking solutions because they offer a flexible, durable, portable, low-cost marking option.

Rubber stamps are popular marking solutions because they are also available in a self-inking format, making the marking process even smoother and more efficient.

There are a lot of different inks out there, but we offer many inks specifically designed with plastic applications in mind, including:

#1250 All-Purpose Air-Dry Ink for Non-Porous Surfaces 

  • The #1250 all-purpose air-dry ink is ideal for our Mark II Stamp Pad. Creates rub-resistant, waterproof imprints on glass, plastic, metal, polypropylene, rubber, and other hard-to-mark non-porous surfaces. Imprint dries in less than 20 seconds on most substrates. 
  • Meets Government specification A-A-208, Rev. B Type 1, and TT-I-1795A, Type 1.
  • Dry Time: >30 seconds
  • Suggested for use in the Mark II Stamp Pad or our metal industrial stamp pads with natural rubber stamps.

#628 Pigmented Ink for Non-Porous Surfaces

  • #628 ink is our stock pigmented ink. Available in vivid colors, it provides excellent adhesion on treated polyethylene and almost all non-porous surfaces.
  • Dry Time: 10-15 seconds
  • Suggested for use in the Mark II Stamp Pad with natural rubber stamps.

#432 Solvent Resistant Ink

  • #432 is designed to resist alcohol, freon, degreasers, cleaning fluids, trichloroethylene, soap, and water. The longer the imprint is given to dry, the more resistant the impression becomes. Suggested applications include metal, plastic, printed circuit boards, polyethylene, and polypropylene.
  • Dry Time: 10-30 seconds
