Flint Group is prepared and ready to discuss today's hot topics - our experts span over 30 countries worldwide and are available to discuss the current key topics affecting narrow web printers – including true low migration inks and coatings!
In 2010, Flint Group launched Flexocure® ANCORA, low migration UV flexo inks for food label and packaging applications. ANCORA, Italian for "anchor", signifies solidity, firmness, integrity. Flint Group's ANCORA brand of products provides the highest print performance while meeting the lowest possible migration limits.
Flint Group knows the need for low migration solutions goes further and beyond UV flexo - extending into UV offset, specialty metallics, coatings and adhesives. To address the escalating need for the best low migration properties, Flint Group is expanding its range of products that are suitable for low migration label and package printing.
