We have three basic types of marking:
1) Transfer Tap
The desired wording or design is printed on a backing film in one or more colors. During vulcanization, the color is transferred to the surface of the hose. The film is then removed. This results in a visually appealing and very easily distinguishable marking. You can choose from a variety of colors, color combinations and font sizes. In principle, the ink transfer marking method is available for all hoses with cloth impression.
2) Colored marking
Liquid color is applied either by a transfer wheel or ink-jet printer. White ink is mostly used, but other colors may be used in exceptional circumstances. This type of marking is less expensive than using ink transfer tape, although it is significantly less hard-wearing. This type of marking can be applied to all our hose types.
The text is embossed into the cover using a wheel or tape. With only a few exceptions, this is only available in the same colour as the cover. Embossing is by far the most durable method, as it is totally compatible with the mix used for the cover. It can be applied to all mandrel built hoses.
