Flint Group Announces New Hardness Level For Rotec Compressible Sleeve

Flint Group announces new hardness level for rotec compressible sleeve.
A balance of hardness and compressibility is needed to achieve optimal printability that is different from job to job. Flint Group already has a range of Compressible Sleeve hardness levels available, but customer inquiries revealed the need for more options to achieve their quality goals. The Flint Group product development team set to work evaluating new advanced materials to expand the current hardness level options of the rotec Compressible Sleeve.

Flint Group has now introduced an Extra Firm rotec Compressible Sleeve with a hardness level of 70 Shore A, in addition to the Medium (50 Shore A) and Firm (60 Shore A) hardness levels. Customers can now reach the next level of printability with the newly expanded range of rotec Compressible Sleeves.

‘Flint Group really listens to printers and optimises communication pathways so that new product development is focused on these actual customer needs. That allows the printer to meet the increasing demands of the flexographic market,’ explained Gina Wienbracke, Flint Group product manager for rotec Sleeves and Adapters.
