Flint Group – Inks, plates and sleeve innovations at Labelexpo

Flint Group presents the new flexo printing plate nyloflex FTF Digital at Label Expo Europe

BELGIUM • Flint Group Flexographic Products and Flint Group Narrow Web will jointly display their most recent innovations at Labelexpo Europe at Hall 5 Stand A41.

Flint Group Flexographic Products’ new nyloflex FTF Digital plate is designed for flexible packaging and label printing and provides flat top dots by simply processing the plate like any standard digital plate. Besides, a special, textured plate surface eliminates the need for time consuming surface screening and provides an even ink laydown and increased solid ink density with just a standard resolution of 2400 or 2540 dpi. The nyloflex NEF Digital flexo plate is especially designed for the nyloflex NExT exposure technology, for the creation of flat top dots and reproduction of surface screenings. Although the NEF Digital plate is designed for UV LED exposure, when exposed with regular tube light units it provides additional benefits. Print samples and plates of the nyloflex FTF Digital and nyloflex NEF Digital will be available at the stand.

Flint Group Narrow Web introduces new ink and coating developments to be highlighted at Labelexpo:

  • Flexocure Ancora 50 – a low migration UV flexo range of inks suitable for food labels and certain packaging applications.
  • PackCure Secure White – a low migration UV flexo white ink formulated for stringent migration demands in packaging applications, including solventless lamination.
  • Flexocure Ancora 50 Metallic Inks – a range of UV flexo low migration metallic inks suitable for certain narrow web packaging applications and for labels.
  • HydroPropack – a water-based flexo ink developed specifically for narrow web flexible packaging applications.
  • With the DigiCoat UV varnish range Flint Group becomes an officially recommended supplier of OPV’s for use on HP Indigo’s digital printed media for self-adhesive labels and packaging.

Additionally, Flint Group is pleased to introduce an expanding range of EkoCure, LED UV, products which now include metallic inks, UV Shrink Whites, UV Rotary Screen Inks, EkoCure Ivory and Ebony, and a wide range of coatings and adhesives.

During Labelexpo Europe, Flint Group will deliver critical information to their guests via Speakers’ Corner seminars. A variety of industry experts will discuss market trends, food packaging, and sustainability through LED UV and provide practical information and market data points. These seminars will take place daily at 12:00 and 15:00.
