Flint Group has announced the launch of Flexocure Ancora 50 – low migration UV flexo inks for food labels and certain flexible packaging applications.

Guillaume Clement - vice president Global Narrow Web for Flint Group said: “With the introduction of Flexocure Ancora 50, we are expanding our portfolio of dedicated inks to suit the growing world of short run label and packaging applications. This ink series is specially designed to support converters who print labels for the food segment. They meet some specific packaging applications where low migration inks are required. It complements our existing UV flexo low migration ink series,  Flexocure Ancora and our UV offset, Lithocure Ancora – both dedicated to the most stringent food packaging applications. ‘Ancora’ becomes a comprehensive umbrella for customers looking for high quality and compliant low migration inks.”
