September 2021: Flint Group Packaging Inks has announced the launch of a new innovative concentrate technology designed to solve many of the efficiency challenges faced by today’s Flexible Packaging converter. Part of the company’s recently announced ONECode solvent-based ink and coating range in Europe, Flint Group’s Universal Bases are designed to be utilised for surface, medium, and high-performance lamination flexible packaging printing, including sterilisation work. Flint Group is extremely excited to offer this portfolio of multi-functional nitrocellulose-free concentrates which consist of dispersions made from select pigments in a superior resin.
The company’s Universal Bases offer compatibility with a wide range of main and co-binder resins used in multiple ink formulations, including Nitrocellulose (NC), Polyurethane (PU) and other key chemistries, thereby providing a streamlined solution to ink management and ultimate flexibility. The advantage these Universal Bases offer is the ability to blend a PU-based system for high-end lamination, pouches and retort.
Being monomeric plasticiser-free (molecular weight <1.000D) to guarantee low migration characteristics, these Universal Bases are suitable for printing on a wide range of film and foil materials. Furthermore, the mono-pigmented base scheme delivers very clean shades for a maximum colour gamut.
