Flint Group Narrow Web Expands Low Migration Ink Range PLYMOUTH, MI—Flint Group Narrow Web recently introduced Low Migration UV Flexo Silver and Low Migration Metallic Pastes, further expanding its portfolio. These specialty inks have been tested and proven to have the best low migration properties and will be available in North America in March. Migration measurements show that with Low Migration UV Flexo Silver, migration levels below 10 parts per billion may be achieved when correctly applied on suitable packaging structures. This was verified based on the standard migration test method using the food simulants 95 percent ethanol as set out in Commission Directive 97/48/EC. This silver exhibits very good metallic performance, cure speed and adhesion to a wide range of both paper and synthetic substrates. Low Migration UV Flexo Silver is fully compliant with Swiss Ordinance SR 817.023.21 listing and the Nestlé Guidance Note on Packaging Inks. Three metallic pastes suitable for use in low migration ink systems—Rich Gold, Pale Gold and Silver—are first gener- ation metallic pastes suitable for narrow web low migration applications and are for use as two component ink systems— Flexocure ANCORA (UV flexo) systems. These components have proven to pass the most stringent migration tests applied by the industry.
