1835 Pluri Market

Flint Group announces PluriTech™ Shrink-U, the next generation of solvent-based packaging inks for the North American Gravure Shrink Sleeve Market.

Over the last five years the Shrink Sleeve market has become more complex and new film technologies have driven printers to acquire multiple ink systems to compete.  High fidelity graphics are also pushing the limits of the conventional shrink ink systems. With PluriTech™ Shrink-U Flint Group responds to these challenges.

PluriTech™ Shrink-U provides excellent adhesion to a wide range of substrates making it truly “Universal”.  This new ink system further delivers the peace of mind that comes with zero blocking, flex-crack free, and zero ink pick.

“The industry has been looking for a universal ink system for shrink applications for a long time. PluriTech™ Shrink-U provides that capability.  This universal gravure shrink sleeve ink system can replace several inks used in the past; reducing inventories and complexity.' says John Gaber Product Manager Film & Foil, Packaging and Narrow Web North America.

John Gaber concludes: “Recently we launched FlexiTech™ Shrink-U for the flexo shrink sleeve market segment, we are now happy to introduce the gravure solution to universal adhesion including product resistance.  PluriTech™ Shrink-U will help the converters in this market reach new levels of technical success”.
