ONECode - A new simplified range of solvent-based inks and coatings for European Flexible Packaging converters

Flint Group Packaging Inks, one of the largest ink and coatings suppliers to the global print and packaging industry, has enhanced its solvent-based range of inks and coatings for European customers. The new ONECode range is designed simplify the flexible packaging printing process, reducing process waste, and increasing ease in doing business.

The ONECode portfolio reportedly incorporates VertixCode for flexo printing, MatrixCode for gravure, HelixCode for dual purpose inks (flexo and gravure), and ZenCode, a recently launched range of sustainable solutions. Enhancing and complementing the portfolio are overprint varnishes and primers under the NexisCode brand name, and additives under the AdmixCode brand.

“These products, designed for both current and new developments in printing processes and substrates, adhere to global regulatory compliance requirements and are suitable for all flexible packaging applications," said Thomas Strohe, senior director product strategy & segmentation, Packaging Inks. "ONECode offers a flexible solution enabling printers and converters to expand and flex their operations as these inks will always deliver high quality and consistent results."

After a detailed review of its solvent-based portfolio and the raw materials used in manufacturing, Flint Group Packaging Inks combined its findings with customer insight to simplify and deliver a product offering that addresses printers’ current and future needs and their print aspirations. The ONECode brand encompasses a full range of innovation-driven printing inks, coatings, primers, and additives developed by a global group of technical specialists working together as one team.

The rebranded solvent-based portfolio creates a new foundation for Flint Group Packaging Inks in Europe. Product codes will remain the same as the packaging industry starts switching over from Flint Group’s incumbent ink brands to the new ONECode portfolio.

While the launch of the ONECode range is rolling out now across Europe, further global regions supplied by Flint Group, including Latin America, North America and others will introduce the ONECode framework to its customers in 2022.
