Last month Flint Group  announces the global launch of its latest version UV LED process inks, XCURA EVO created out of the new resin technology system for ‘increased stability and performance consistency’.  
“‘EVO’ is short for evolutionary,” explains Trevor Amps, global product management director for Energy Curing inks. “This signals a step change from our world renowned XCURA formulations which, for the past four years, have served our customers very well as an industry leader. XCURA EVO is our next generation offer to the UV LED and low energy sheetfed market, and we are very pleased to announce its global launch.”
The new ink has  ISO 12647-2 compliance on approved substrates.
“More and more sheetfed press manufacturers are heading their technology development with LED and low energy curing, and we see growing numbers of retro-fit conversions from lamp providers and OEMs as well,” added Amps. “Some of the main drivers encouraging commercial printers to switch to UV LED are improved efficiency, reduced energy costs and the ability to break into new markets. XCURA EVO helps to maximise all of these with its excellent flow characteristic, superb transfer and high gloss.  XCURA EVO is the second global launch this year to be created with these unique formulations.  All Flint Group sheetfed energy curing products are  compliant with current raw material exclusion lists, National and International regulations and manufacturing best practice, as laid down by advisory bodies, such as the European Printing Ink Association (EuPIA), and the result is a very positive, sustainable product offering in our latest energy curing product range. Considering we are the only manufacturer offering just one product for both UV LED and the low energy systems, I think we’ve come up with an excellent new product that will prove to be a real winner!”
