Flint Group – New ink component for shrink sleeves
GERMANY • Flint Group has introduced the Pluritech SLU shrink sleeve ink system. It has been developed to be used in conjunction with the company’s standard NitroBase WZ61 concentrates suitable for rotogravure applications.
Many converters producing shrink sleeves are printing on a variety of different substrates which currently require multiple ink systems of different chemistry. When using the one standard ink system Pluritech SLU for different purposes, converters will benefit from simplified ink specifications, reduced inventories and press returns. Thanks to the avoidance of changing ink series/chemistry, set up times will be reduced as cleaning cycles are obsolete. Pluritech SLU can be in-house blended by using the standard NitroBase WZ61 concentrates.
