Flint Group Announces FlexiTech Shrink-U

Flint Group has announced FlexiTech Shrink-U, the next generation of solvent-based packaging inks for the North American Flexo Shrink Sleeve Market. Over the last five years the Shrink Sleeve market has become more complex and new film technologies have driven printers to acquire multiple ink systems to compete. High fidelity graphics are also pushing the limits of the conventional shrink ink systems. With FlexiTech Shrink-U Flint Group responds to these challenges.

FlexiTech Shrink-U provides excellent adhesion to a wide range of substrates making it truly “Universal”. This new ink system further delivers the peace of mind that comes with zero blocking, flex-crack free and zero ink pick.

“The industry has been looking for a universal ink system for shrink applications for a long time. FlexiTech Shrink-U provides that capability. This universal flexo shrink sleeve ink system can replace several inks used in the past; reducing inventories and complexity." says Grant Shouldice Product Director Film & Foil, Packaging and Narrow Web North America.

Grant Shouldice concludes: “FlexiTech Shrink-U will help the converters in this market reach new levels of technical success”.
