The main focus of Flint Group Flexographic Products’ presentation will be the innovative technology for producing flat top dots and surface screening, nyloflex NExT which offers a range of advantages to the user. In flexible packaging, printing plates exposed with this technology enable excellent ink transfer, particularly in solids. In corrugated printing, fluting will considerably be reduced. nyloflex NExT provides significantly improved reproduction quality and long-term stability. The exposure technology is applicable for all digital flexographic printing plates and can be easily implemented into the existing digital workflow. In contrast to most of the competitive flat top dot technologies, there is no need for additional consumables.
The NEW nyloflex ACE plate shows considerable benefits to the printer - besides a precise reproduction of details, high contrast images and smoother vignettes, it shows its strengths particularly with outstanding stability on press, reduced downtimes due to a very low dust attraction and a clean running nature during printing. The plate displays excellent properties when used with the nyloflex NExT exposure technology, for which it has been especially designed.
Flint Group Packaging and Narrow Web presents VarioLam, a PUR-based ink system for all major films in packaging printing. This innovative multi-purpose system is specifically designed for high performance lamination printing including retort applications, for laminations with both solvent-based and solvent-free adhesives and is free of PVB, NC and monomeric plasticizer. VarioLam – the next generation flexo ink series with focus on lamination structures – is suitable especially for stand up pouches.
The water-based flexo ink series Premo Film SXS provides a sustainable solution for surface printing on polyolefin films. Developed in order to meet the increased demand for environmentally friendly packaging solutions, the ink series is suitable for compostable packaging as well as a number of additional applications.
Premo Film SXS is based on a unique self cross-linking technology that enables the ink film to have very good adhesion to non-absorbent substrates such as oPP and PE. Adhesion characteristics with Premo Film SXS are far better than with any conventional water-based ink. Its good adhesion makes it ideal for stringent end-use applications such as carrier and ice cube bags. Especially in water-based flexo printing inks Flint Group is one of the strongest suppliers in the market.
