Unmatched Marking for Rubber and Tires

Our V-Series marking systems are engineered for the harsh, challenging environments typically found in rubber processing and tire manufacturing. They deliver proven reliability for small and large character marking on rubber and tires. Our VOC-free white ink, “disappearing” ink, and other specialized inks for rubber are engineered in house and deliver the best adhesion and mark quality in the industry today.

Applications include:

  • Striping
  • 2D codes
  • Product identification
  • Lot, batch, and ID coding
  • Branding
Quality inks.

Matthews offers VOC-free inks as well as “disappearing” ink for use on rubber blanks for final tread. Additional inks, including water-based and fast-dry, HAPS-free pigmented inks, eliminate damage to the finished tire and ensure the ink doesn’t transfer in the mold.

Reduce downtime.

Dramatically reduce the time between recipe changes with our Flowjet ink recirculation system, a far more efficient ink delivery solution than competitive systems. Our ultra low-maintenance printheads also feature our exclusive ink circulating system, saving you on ink costs as well as time on cleaning.

Lower cost.

The most reliable printhead in the industry, the V-Series, provides significant reduction in ink consumption and outlasts the competitive with over 9-billion cycles before tuning is required.
