Flint Group Narrow Web has expanded its low migration ink range to include UV metallic inks and pastes. Low Migration UV Flexo Silver is the company’s first generation low migration single component metallic UV flexo ink. Migration measurements show that with Low Migration UV Flexo Silver, item code YFM00077, migration levels below 10 ppb may be achieved when correctly applied on suitable packaging structures. This was verified based on the standard migration test method using the food simulants 95% ethanol as set out in Commission Directive 97/48/EC. Flint Group is also offering three metallic pastes suitable for use in low migration ink systems: Rich Gold, Pale Gold, and Silver. These are first generation metallic pastes suitable for narrow web low migration applications and are for use as two-component ink systems. The two-component concept allows printers to purchase the necessary components to mix gold and silver shades locally, in both Lithocure Ancora (UV offset) and the Flexocure Ancora (UV flexo) systems.
