Flint Group innovation showcased at CorrExpo 2023
July 2023: Flint Group Packaging, one of the largest consumable suppliers to the global print and packaging industry, is gearing up for an innovation showcase at CorrExpo 2023, which takes place 28-30 August in Cleveland, Ohio, USA.
Attracting Paper & Board packaging converters from across North America, CorrExpo is one of the region’s premier packaging exhibitions. At booth 219, Flint Group will put its AQUACode range of water-based ink and coating technologies on center stage alongside its ground-breaking IDERA digital print engine.
The AQUACode water-based ink and coating portfolio includes OctaCode, a water-based dispersion technology that offers exceptional performance on porous and non-porous substrates, high pigment loading for superior graphics, and stability both on and off-press.
Jeff Ashburn, Vice President Strategic Accounts Paper & Board, expressed enthusiasm for the upcoming event, stating, "CorrExpo 2023 provides us with a tremendous opportunity to connect with corrugated printers and converters and show what we can do. As always, we will demonstrate exactly why Flint Group is the go-to name for inks and coatings, highlighting that our products go beyond quality and consistency and address printers' sustainability goals."
Ashburn further emphasized the company's ongoing approach to innovative chemistries, commenting, "Flint Group is one of the most established names in the global corrugated packaging industry, and part of that success is that we are not afraid to be bold in our innovation. With extensive R&D programs, working directly with the printers that use our products daily, we are creating an ink and coating portfolio that delivers a true difference, on-press and beyond."
In addition to showcasing its AQUACode range, Flint Group's digital division, Xeikon, will also be present at the booth. CorrExpo visitors will learn more about IDERA, the revolutionary digital printing engine for high-quality corrugated packaging.
The IDERA solution combines Xeikon's extensive digital printing expertise with Flint Group's corrugated know-how and manufacturing footprint. Making corrugated print excellence easy, adaptable and sustainable at the most competitive cost, IDERA introduces a brand-new digital post-print technology.
