The product line offers inks suitable for all types of insulation, depending on the process and speed. Standard colors in the cable industry are available for all series, special shades can be supplied upon request by the customer.

The Herkula brand is distributed throughout Italy by Mohwinckel S.r.l., a company specializing in the trade of plastic materials.
