Pad-printing inks are applied in thin films and comprise resins, pigments, and a vehicle. The resin is a binder which forms the film of the ink. Pigment gives ink its colour and is mostly in the form of powders or dyes. The vehicle provides the ink with its printing characteristics and can be used to adjust the viscosity of the resin. Pad-printing inks sometimes also consist of special additives to ensure that tacky quality of ink is sustained.
