Flint Group expands EkoCure line with new UV LED rotary screen whites

July 18, 2014

The company says the inks are a "first-ever" technology for their ability to be used in combination with multiple ink types.

Flint Group Narrow Web North America has commercialized two new UV LED Rotary Screen Whites to compliment tits EkoCure brand. This product is being touted by Flint Group as a "first-ever" technology for its ability to be used in combination with multiple ink technologies.

Flint Group’s EkoCure products are widely used in health and beauty, beverage and household labeling applications. The two new UV LED Rotary Screen whites are:
  •  A “first down” UV LED rotary screen white with improved adhesion to many newer films in the marketplace today. Along with outstanding opacity and whiteness, this opaque white cures and prints smoothly at higher speeds than traditional products.
  • 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 colors and then be 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. 

These UV LED rotary screen white technologies are also available in Flint Group’s legacy brand CombiWhite conventional UV curing formulas. The new EkoCure products are currently only available in the North American region. In September 2013, Flint Group Narrow Web won the Award for Innovation at The Label Industry Global Awards in Brussels for its EkoCure UV LED ink technologies.  Flint Group was named joint winner alongside co-supplier and development partner, Mark Andy.
