PORELON® INK ROLLS
All Lincoln contact coders use disposable Poly-Ink® rolls manufactured by
Porelon®. The unique design of Poly-Ink® rolls gives you a clean, sharp
impression without the liquid mess of re-inking rolls after each production run.
Rolls snap easily into place, without having to stop the line. You can change
the ink roll and adjust the pressure in seconds without ever touching the roll,
so you will save cleanup time and downtime. There’s never too much or too little
The ink in a standard roll dries by instant absorption on porous surfaces such
as cardboard cartons, boxes, fiber drums, shipping containers, and non-coated
papers. We have specialty ink rolls that will dry on many non-porous materials.
