2790 Flint Group Launches Novavit F 1000 WIN BIO The Next Generation Of Straight Line And Perfecting Sheetfed Ink Technology

Flint Group Launches Novavit® F 1000 WIN BIO – the next generation of straight line and perfecting sheetfed ink technology.

In today’s highly competitive world, it’s important to offer something different. That’s why Flint Group Sheetfed has a passion to innovate, creating products that take continuous improvement to the next level.  With the introduction of Novavit® F 1000 WIN BIO, this commitment to exceed expectations is perfectly demonstrated with a long list of features that helps commercial printers improve quality, extend wash intervals for blankets and impression cylinders and reduce start-up wastage, all of which reduces cost per print.


 “We were looking to develop a product that would tick a number of boxes for large, high speed, high quality commercial printers” explains Hans Roesch, Head of Technical Service Centre, Sheetfed Commercial EMEA “We wanted to offer a very flexible product to print shops with modern high speed presses, who need a low misting, very fast setting ink with low tack that can bring high quality to a wide range of paper grades, even picking sensitive stock” he says “ At the same time, extending wash intervals and reducing start-up waste was one of our top priorities in developing this new ink series, and we also wanted high colour strength with excellent rub resistance and supreme process stability. Novavit® F 1000 WIN BIO has all of these and more thanks to an innovative bio-based binder system that we developed, which also delivers very good ink-water balance from start-up.”


During the critical field testing stage, more than 10 print shops across Europe put Novavit® F 1000 WIN BIO through its paces and every one of them gave very positive feedback, with several successfully gaining ISO 12647-2:2004 certification using the product. Many of them remarked on the very stable print performance, no piling on sensitive stock and notably lower odour than other inks.


All of this feedback makes Flint Group very confident that Novavit® F 1000 WIN BIO offers the level of flexibility it was aiming for, positioning it a step ahead of the market.
