The highly volatile raw material cost market in 2011 requires Flint Group to increase prices of packaging inks in North America effective Nov. 1.
Due to the continued raw material cost pressure Flint Group has to further increase prices of all packaging and narrow web inks in North America, effective May 1.
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.
