Flint Group Ink Bases for High-Definition Quality


PLYMOUTH, MN | Flint Group reports FlexiBase HDP is the next generation of high-definition bases for process printing. This patent-pending set of bases allows flexo printers to come closer than ever to gravure print quality, company says, providing sharp, crisp print results. Line is designed specifically for surface- and reverse-coated flexographic printing on bags and pouches.

“There have been new developments [in high-definition flexo printing] delivered by plate, anilox, and press manufacturers to address this market trend,” says Philip Ernest, director of technology Liquid Packaging. “This new set of dispersions is the final piece of the puzzle for wide web package printers looking to replicate gravure-type print quality."

Philip adds, “Not only does this new product deliver high definition print quality; it improves printers’ throughput by minimizing plate washes and extending the life of the printing plate. This new product line truly lowers the printer’s applied cost through patent pending technology.”

Company says 18 color choices provide high color strength with high gloss, excellent resolubility, and good flow; product delivers the ability to print HD 150–200 lpi graphics with very low dot gain; and it runs clean for longer periods of time vs conventional slow bases.
