Newspaper fountain solutions round out Flint Group's portfolio

Press release from the issuing company

Plymouth, MI USA  – Two fountain solutions from Flint Group serve common newspaper and coldset printer needs while offering an added benefit: they have been designed for optimal compatibility with Flint Group's Arrowlith news inks. One-stop shopping and ease of use are two key benefits of Flint Group's increased product offerings and recent reorganization.

Varn Newsline 435, a low-VOC mild acid fountain solution, is a cost-effective fountain solution offering:

•    Low dosing needs
•    Wider operating window
•    Quicker restarts due to fast clean-up
•    Reduced paper waste
•    Reduced dampener maintenance

Varn Newsline 355 is an economical neutral fountain solution designed for modern pressrooms. It is designed for spray dampening systems and offers:

•    Excellent non-piling package
•    Wetting system designed for higher press speeds
•    Flexibility for use with conventional or CTP plates with conventional or stochastic screens
•    Effective combination of biocides to prevent microbial growth

Norm Harbin, News Ink Business Director for Flint Group, highlights the on-press benefits: "Both of these products have been fine-tuned to optimize interaction-and resulting press performance-with popular ink formulations. By understanding composition and developing a 'marriage' of the fount and ink, press performance and consistency can be taken to the next level."

Kevin Fennewald, Chemicals Business Director for Flint Group, notes that the time is right: "By adding these mild acid and neutral fountain solutions to our portfolio, Flint Group increases options for newspaper and other coldset printers at a time when choice is important and performance cannot be compromised."
