Flint Group Releases Next-Gen Versions of UltraCURA Low Migration Inks
Flint Group has released the next generation of its UltraCURA Sheetfed UV Low Migration inks in the UltraCURA Sens, UltraCURA Sens Plas and UltraCURA Sens Bases. Created out of a new resin technology system, these inks are the first in a series of advanced energy curing products from Flint Group to be launched in 2017.
Trevor Amps, Global Product Management Director for Energy Curing inks explains the significance of today’s launch:
“We decided to use specifically selected resin principles for all our energy curing products, with common, balanced pigmentation levels,” notes Trevor Amps, global product management director for energy curing inks, Flint Group. “This will increase stability and performance consistency across our entire energy curing range.”
The UltraCURA Sens systems are low-odor, low-migration process ink and base inks for sheetfed and web offset packaging printing. They’re suitable for coated and uncoated papers and board, and for plastic substrates. They all give excellent adhesion, good ink-water stability, good rub resistance, high color strength, fast curing speed and good press stability.
UltraCURA Sens and UltraCURA Sens Plas are particularly well suited for the production of packaging that complies with the requirements of the EU-regulation 1935/2004 and 2023/2006 as well as with the Swiss Ordinance 817.023.21. Additionally, the series meets the requirements of the EuPIA Guideline “Printing Inks applied to the non-food contact surface of food packaging materials and articles.”
