Flint Group to Debut at Drupa 2008, Offer Innovations
The new Novavit® F 950 PLUS BIO and Novavit® F 550 PLUS ranges for sheetfed offset printing will be introduced. These inks have been developed for fast running printing presses and are ideal for shiny coated paper and cardboard. Novavit® F 550 PLUS is especially suitable for straight printing mode; the most recent binding agent technologies facilitate an even better ink/water performance. Novavit® F 950 BIO PLUS has been designed for use in very fast running multicolour printing presses for face and reverse printing modes. Both series demonstrate clearly improved misting properties at high printing speeds.
The INULINE ink/varnish system constitutes a further innovation. The name stands for two innovative ink-varnish systems: the first system consists of a special printing ink, Novavit® F770 INULINE, which penetrates particularly quickly, is highly pigmented and has a wax-free formulation, and Ultraking® INULINE, a corresponding UV varnish. The system permits the user to apply a UV varnish directly inline to a conventional sheetfed offset printing ink without using a primer. The second element of the INULINE system delivers extremely high gloss rates with a water-based coating. The same Novavit® F770 INULINE is used, this time combined with the special Novaset 7302/100 INULINE water-based coating.
Another theme is Premo®, the concept developed last year. Diverse possibilities and flexibility during the development of optimal printing ink systems for the packaging industry are available using the water-based printing ink building block technology.
