Printing Inks for Automotive

Automotive applications place high demands on printing inks: they must be resistant to extreme climatic chamber tests, must be highly opaque, exhibit resistance to sweat, abrasion, and cleaning products, and adhere well to polycarbonate.

Marabu offers the perfect solutions to these challenges whether for 2D or 3D parts.
