Manufacturers and distributors of magnetic pigment, magnetic ink and speciality chemicals for the printing industry.

AMPS Europe Ltd manufactures and distributes a range of recordable magnetic iron oxides including barium and strontium ferrites and cobalt doped pigments. We have manufacturing in China and South Korea and good access from these sites to major sea and airports. Our pigments are used for producing magnetic inks and slurries which are then used to produce plastic cards for entry and exit of secure premises, bank or credit cards, mass transit tickets for road, rail, sea or air travel, magnetic tapes for recording or storage and many other applications.

AMPS Europe also distributes a range of speciality chemicals including photo initiator TPO and TPO-L.

Standard products:

  • Magnetic pigment (coercivities from 300 Oe to 4000 Oe)
  • Cobalt doped magnetic pigments
  • Magnetic Inks (coercivities from 300 Oe to 4000 Oe in solvent or water
  • Photo-initiator powder (TPO)
  • Photo-initiator liquid (TPO-L)
  • Oxygen absorbers (ferrous and non-ferrous)

All magnetic pigments (with the exception of barium and strontium ferrites), manufactured by AMPS, are acicular in particle shape and sub micron in particle size. This allows our products to conform to the industry standards.
