Ceramics for PPE & Health Protection
Digital printing is commonly used for identification of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). This includes the marking and coding of masks, respirators, gloves, liquid containers, and a range of other items. The printing and supply of these products have been in high demand with the COVID-19 pandemic and are likely to remain in high demand in the future.
It is vital that PPE products are marked and coded accurately and consistently. This accuracy, especially when completed in high speed environments, must comply with industry regulations without compromising the quality and reliability of the product. When high quality, accurate printing is produced, especially in the Health Protection sector, it increases consumer confidence in the products.
Technical Ceramic materials are used in the digital printing process as they are designed to satisfy the demand for the need of high speed and quality in commercial printing, due to their high strength, hardness, and temperature properties. Ceramic parts are used in many different printing applications including digital inkjet printers and can support solutions for a range of printing demands.
