According to Tony Lord, President of Flint Group Commercial Publication Web and Flint Offset Packaging Solutions divisions, the company has been developing this product for some time initially directed towards the retail market as a response to the desire to reduce the carbon footprint within the heatset print process to sustainably support their valued customer base.
However, with the devastating impact of global gas pricing which shows no sign of abating the company accelerated the development programme and is now able to provide the Kryoset ink series, which enables production of heatset quality products within the conventional heatset process without the need for the drying process.
‘Production results have confirmed on various popular substrates that Kryoset is able to provide high quality print with significantly reduced or a totally eliminated drying process, thereby significantly enhancing print economics during this volatile inflationary period. The key to this development is the relationship between the ink, fount and substrate. But recognising the prevailing shortages with paper supply to the industry we have consciously developed Kryoset with a wide utilisation bandwidth to ensure optimal performance with those substrates that are commercially available today,’ said Lord.
Demand for these products is expected to be strong. Initially the company will be developing with its existing loyal customers prior to introduction to the broader market.
