Flint Group Narrow Web North America has commercialized two new UV Rotary Screen Whites under the new CombiWhite X2 brand name.
In 2002, Flint Group introduced CombiWhite to the Narrow Web market. "This first-ever, easy overprint-able, technology has been a leading product for combination printing in our industry ever since and is best known for its exceptional ability to be used in combination with multiple ink technologies," the company says.
Introduced now are USW91043 and USW91039. USW91043 is intended to be used as a “first down” UV rotary screen white and has improved adhesion to many newer films in the marketplace today. Along with its outstanding opacity and whiteness, this opaque white cures and prints smoothly at higher speeds than traditional products.
USW91039 is a “second down” white, which is used when a white is needed in a print sequence that is “trapped” between other print layers. This white will print over UV flexo colours and then is able to be printed upon by other print technologies, and will yield good print quality along with excellent adhesion and scratch resistance under severe test conditions.
Flint Group’s CombiWhite X2 products are widely used in the health and beauty, beverage, and household labeling applications.
These new CombiWhite X2 products are currently only available in the North American region due to regulatory restraints in Europe. All of these UV rotary screen white technologies are also available in Flint Group’s EkoCure UV LED curing formulas.
