Flint Group Showcases Innovations at Labelexpo Americas 2008


Flint Group Narrow Web will unveil real innovations at its booth  5713 at Labelexpo Americas 2008, presenting 21st-century print solutions for the best in label, tag and package printing, and pushing the boundaries in decorative, security and quality print.

The company is addressing the need for sustainability in narrow web print by introducing the first-ever water-based flexo inks using renewable soy resin technology.  Meeting Soy Seal approval, these inks provide great printability, good color strength, are stable on press,and easy to use.

Can you truly print UV rotary screen inks in combination with UV flexo inks?  The answer is “yes” with CombiScreen.  These VOC-free inks are available in Pantone base colors, are ideal for combination printing and can be used on all types of substrate.  Extremely durable and with excellent opacity, these inks are perfect for beverage, health and beauty, and no-label-look applications.

Newly formulated Flexocure Ebony provides superb blackness.  This high-intensity UV flexo ink is the black that printers are looking for.  Flexocure Ivory provides the whitest white in a UV flexo ink – rivaling UV screen whites.

Visitors will enjoy hospitality and networking at booth 5713 on Wednesday, Sept. 10, as  Flint Group Narrow Web hosts its annual Labelexpo happy hour,  and presents its prestigious Print Awards.  This red carpet ceremony is a “must attend” event, with refreshments and live music.

On Booth 5713 throughout the show visitors can experience the full Flint Group Narrow Web product portfolio.  This extensive, dedicated portfolio includes inks for letterpress, flexo, UV flexo, UV offset, and UV screen for many applications, including self-adhesive, wrap-around and in-mold labels; sleeves; flexible packaging; and folding cartons.
