PLYMOUTH, MN, Oct. 13, 2016 (Press Release) -Flint Group exhibits at TAPPI’s corrugated conference, SuperCorr Expo 2016, October 17-20, 2016 in Orlando, Florida, USA. The conference will have over 3,000 attendees with a sold out exhibit floor! Flint Group’s Flexographic Products and Paper & Board ink experts will be available at stand 1555 during exhibition hours to discuss new products and answer questions. Additionally, AIC (American Inks and Coatings), recently acquired by Flint Group, will be located at stand 3100 ready to discuss all things corrugated!
Flint Group Flexographic Products will exhibit its extensive portfolio of printing consumables, including nyloflex photopolymer printing plates and processing equipment and dayCorr die-cutting blankets and anvil covers. The latest design of the dayCorr die-cutting blankets, which incorporates a composite core backing made with Flint Group’s proprietary in-house technology, will be on display. The new ground breaking composite imparts a tougher and more durable nature to the blanket, thus extending the overall life. Additionally, the new product is up to 15% lighter in weight than the traditional steel backings, thus offering a more user-friendly and safer product for operators to handle. Field tests have shown excellent results, producing an impressive increase in life on rotational machinery.
Flint Group Flexographic Products will also highlight the nyloflex FRC printing plate, which exhibits superior resistance to chipping during plate washout - a common issue among many corrugated plates, especially thick plates with deep relief requirements. The new plate is based on an optimised formulation for faster exposure and processing times to improve productivity as compared with many traditional printing plates. The unique composition of the plate results in increased durability during processing, making it less likely to chip and offers superior print quality on all types of corrugated boards. Providing excellent ink transfer and outstanding solid area coverage with minimal dot gain, the nyloflex FRC plate is ideal for all corrugated print applications ranging from challenging graphics and multi-colour designs to simple line work.
Flint Group Paper & Board Division experts are eager to discuss its series of inks with attendees, including PremoNova® PremoCorr™ and PremoCorr™ ET. Flint Group is also very excited to have our AIC team on site at SuperCorr 2016 at stand 3100. Combining Flint Group and AIC has expanded the entire product portfolio, strengthening support to packaging printers in North America, and the team is looking forward to sharing that extended support with attendees.
Michael Mosley, Vice President & General Manager Paper & Board, North America says, “In 2016, American Inks and Coatings and Flint Group combined forces to be the leading provider of inks and coatings in the North American paper and board packaging sector. As separate companies, we listened to our customers and provided the products, services and expertise they required to grow their businesses. Over the past months, our companies have been working together, side by side, fine tuning our synergies to present the very best innovations and service platforms as a combined operation in the corrugated sector. The solutions and infrastructure that we can deliver through our partnership will certainly be unmatched and our customers will undoubtedly benefit.”
