Flint Introduces PremoCup™ Inks for Paper Cup Flexo Applications

Published on 2015-07-01. Author : SpecialChem

LEBANON, Ohio, USA -- Flint Group announced launch of PremoCup, packaging inks for paper cup flexo applications.

PremoCup delivers wet and dry rub resistance without affecting print quality, utilizes Flint Group’s building block formulating technology, and comes with an extremely wide operating window that substantially reduces the variation in print quality caused by inconsistent coating weights commonly observed with long standing technology.

The trend for paper cup printers is for increased print fidelity and complex designs to enhance appeal. High fidelity graphics are pushing the limits of conventional ink systems – with PremoCup, Flint Group responds to these challenges.

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 – increasing their overall productivity and resulting in high quality graphics.”

Mr. 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."

PremoCup™ 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.

According to Lloyd Woodrum, Product Manager, Paper & Board North America, “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.”

PremoCup™ 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.
