Flint Group Launches New Range of PU-Based Lamination Inks


Flint Group’s Packaging and Narrow Web Division recorded a series of successes at customers after having launched VarioLam AB, its new solvent-based ink series for the packaging market. The product range is based on a nitrocellulose- and chlorine-free polyurethane/acrylic binder system and is especially designed to meet the requirements of a broad range of high performance lamination applications.

“VarioLam AB is suitable for both flexo and gravure applications and thus allows our customers to manage lamination printing with only one basic ink range,” said Tom Donaldson, technical support manager for Flint Group UK & Ireland.

The new product range has been introduced at a number of customers for a variety of end-use applications including wet wipes solutions as well as boil in the bag applications.
