Flint Group: new low migration UV offset range

SWEDEN A low migration UV offset range dedicated for narrow-web labels and packaging applications has been introduced. In 2010 Flexocure Ancora, low migration UV flexo inks for food label and packaging applications, were launched. Ancora is Italian for “anchor” and is said to signify solidity, firmness and integrity.

The new product, Lithocure Ancora, is a first true low migration UV offset range dedicated to narrow-web printing. It is a robust, reliable, high-performance UV offset ink with documented outstanding performance results in migration testing. It has proved to pass migration demands for all food simulants set up in the latest directives.

Lithocure Ancora is said to deliver multiple benefits: very low migration – tested, proven and documented; maximised water/fount window and lowest possible water pickup ensures excellent press stability over extended press hours; very good curing properties so that printers will experience improved productivity; excellent and consistent print quality at high printing speeds.

A mono-pigmented range with very high colour strength allows inks to be used in formulating clean and accurate colour matches.These true low migration UV offset inks are available now in Europe; these inks will be available March of 2014 in North America.
