Flint invests in low migration UV inks

May 23, 2011

Additional manufacturing equipment will be added to the narrow web ink plant in Sweden.

To meet the increased market demand for low migration UV inks, Flint Group has decided to make a major investment into additional manufacturing equipment for its growing ink product range at its plant for narrow web inks in Trelleborg, Sweden.

“The capacity for low migration inks manufacture will be considerably increased after completion of this investment, and we will be able to quickly follow the global market demands of food packaging applications,” says Peter Hakansson, operations director Trelleborg. “The investment will also ensure the elimination of potential contamination since the low migration products will be processed in separate and specialised equipment. We are currently in the process of the installation and plan to reach full capacity from this expansion during the summer. Although demands for low migration UV inks are currently centred on mainland Europe, this investment will also strengthen our global infrastructure to enable Flint Group to further serve the label markets.”

The company recently announced the launch of Flexocure Ancora, Flint’s latest ink series for the food label industry. Ancora meets the lowest possible migration limits and the demands of European legislation, as well as Swiss Ordinance 817.023.21.
