Blacklight / Ultraviolet (UV) Viewable - Isopropyl Alcohol Based
Our Invisible Ink uses special High-Brightness Ultraviolet (UV) Blacklight Viewable compounds. The Invisible glows a bright blue and UV or Blacklight including our special UV flashlight. Under normal light, this ink is completely invisible. This ink can only be seen when illuminated by a UV or Blacklight emitting in the 350nm - 385nm light range. The ink is permanent and can be applied to paper, some plastics, skin, wood and almost any substance. The ink does not wash off, but will eventually wear off if applied to skin. The ink may smear when rubbed on some glossy materials such as glass and some plastics. The ink will fade if left exposed to sunlight for about 1 week. If the ink is not left exposed to the sun, the ink will last indefinitely.
If you are marking plastic, you may want to try the invisible red acetone based ink or the invisible yellow MEK based ink. Different types of plastics and different types of surface finishes after if an ink can be smeared when rubbed after drying.
Depending on the light used, this ink will appear a blue or white depending on UV light used. Please see pictures below for color appearance.
The ink used in our ink pads our a special slow evaporation invisible ink. Because pads have a large surface area when open, we use a slower drying ink than our normal quick dry ink. To replenish pad, use our special UV Stamp Pad ink. Ink pad is delivered in a sealed zip lock bag. When pad is not in use, pad should be kept in sealed bag to prevent ink evaporation.
