Today we specialize in the design and production of the finest pigmented fluids in the market. Gem is the exclusive US and Canadian distributor for KBA-Metronic coding equipment.

A combination of ink jet, thermal transfer, hot stamp and thermal ink jet provide Gem customers with solutions for any marking application. The alphaJET into and alphaJET evo ink jet printers are compatible with pigmented or dye based inks. Combined with Gem’s wide range of ink colors and adhesion characteristics, they provide the perfect final code. The list of available ink jet or contact inks continues to expand.
