From time to time we receive clients’ feedback that asking us to fill up the bottle with make up or ink. “You see there is still room for more liquid, please top it up in next order.” We could top up the bottle, but we actually leave some room in the bottle on purpose. For the solvent and make up contain volatile liquids, when heated up, they transform to gas and volume expands, which leads to increasing pressure inside the bottle and maybe explosion in the end. So for safety sake, we spare some room to buffer the increasing pressure.
So if you have the same question about why the Markem Imaje/Domino/Linx/Videojet ink & make up is around 85% fill up, safety is reason why. Please feel free to contact us if you have more questions regarding CIJ printer liquids.
