Bead Marking Inks are applied to uncured bead rings during the assembly process for coding and identification purposes. The inks are co-curable, have exceptional adhesion to internal rubber components, and do not act as a contaminant. An industry staple for tire manufacturers, these inks significantly reduce defects and waste during production.

Bead Marking Inks are available in a non-hazardous, water-based formulation (TA series) as well as solvent-based (DH series). The inks are packaged in 8 oz. bottles with a cap and nozzle for easy application and are offered in a wide variety of colors.
