Flint Introduces New Ink
With U.S. headquarters in Plymouth, Mich., Flint Group North America Packaging released its newest universal flexo white laminating ink, PolarTek. It is a white ink that can be used over many existing ink systems to deliver very high bond values with all laminating processes, as well as very low retained solvents. PolarTek can thus often replace several other white inks which may have been needed for the varied structures being printed.
“The white ink often makes the difference between poor bond performance and excellent performance in a laminated structure,” said Susan Kuchta, vice president and general manager of Flint Group’s North American Packaging business. “Our flexible packaging customers have often commented on the complexity of their operations and the constantly changing structures. We recognized that the industry needed products which have a wide operating window and could be used more universally across the many structures common to today’s press rooms. PolarTek fills that need and will reduce the number of white inks a printer will need, resulting in reduced inventory, working capital and less complexity within their operations.”
