Regardless of the type of plastic pipe, be it PVC, Polyethylene, ABS, or some other variation, you need to make sure that your product is easily identifiable over its life cycle. Manufacturer’s name, material type, size, pressure rating, relevant manufacturing standard – it all has important meaning to your consumers. Matthews has been designing marking systems for the plastic pipe industry for decades. We embrace the challenges that the pipe industry presents, and are continually developing new inks and looking at new technologies to meet the changing demands.
Reliable and affordable, offset printing provides high quality messages and logos in a rainbow of available ink colors.
Permanent and abrasion-resistant, hot print branding has become the standard method of marking in the industry. A heated type wheel embeds the message into the plastic pipe for a mark that cannot be removed. Foil tape is available in several colors for a crisp, contrasting mark.
Permanently laser etch your plastic pipe with variable information and logos without the costs of consumables or the down time for message changes.
We have both large and small character inkjet printers and inks specifically developed for non-porous surfaces. This non-contact method of printing is ideal for corrugated pipe and other uneven surfaces.
