Flint Issues Inks for Paper Cups

LEBANON, OH | Flint Group announces PremoCup, packaging inks for paper cup applications. Inks utilize company’s building block formulating technology and come with a wide operating window said to reduce the variation in print quality caused by inconsistent coating weights commonly observed with long standing technology.

According to Tony Parrish, Flint Group account executive, "While printing PremoCup at a key customer facility, it was clear that PremoCup printed cleaner allowing the customer to only shut down for routine cleaning at shift changes rather than multiple times during the shift, thus increasing their overall productivity and resulting in high quality graphics.”

Parrish continues, "Our customer appreciates the fact that they can substantially reduce costs associated with conventional pH adjusters to maintain viscosity; the press operators were happy to focus on other tasks rather than constantly maintaining the press due to quality issues."

Company says ink is designed to deliver wet and dry rub resistance on a variety of polycoated paperboard and paperboard substrates, has a wide operating window under normal environmental conditions, and maintains a consistent viscosity while on press.

Lloyd Woodrum, product manager, Paper & Board North America, says, “The viscosity stability and extremely wide operating window associated with PremoCup is essential to reducing the color and density variation common with traditional inks that require frequent amine adjustments to maintain viscosity.”

Inks can be prepared to match accepted color standards as a finished ink or supplied as PremoNova dispersions and extenders for use in an ink dispensing system.
