Flint Group Narrow Web is introducing a series of high-performance flexo and rotary screen inks for UV LED curing under the EkoCure brand. These inks will be the first commercially available inks designed for combination print formulated specifically for UV LED curing. EkoCure is developed using specially selected photoinitiators that match the narrow and targeted wavelength area that is typical for UV LED lamp output. Flint Group partnered with Phoseon Technology UV LED lamps, and tested these inks using the FirePower 16 W/cm2 on a Mark Andy 4150 press. The series is based on bio-renewable resin technology.
