Flint Group has launched EkoCure XS, a UV LED ink series  designed for the demands of shrink sleeve applications. “We knew from interviews with clients specialized in the short run shrink sleeve market, that they want a UV dual-curable ink with better adhesion and increased curing speed to boost productivity and reduce yield losses” said Kelly Kolliopoulos, global marketing director for Flint Group Narrow Web.  
She concludes, “EkoCure XS combines the latest ink chemistry including novel binders that provide perfect cure and sufficient flexibility of the cured ink allowing the adhesion to remain fool-proof – especially after post shrink processing is completed.  The full range of pantone shades and opaque white are available.”
