Flint Group introduces sustainable ink & coating range

05 August 2020: Flint Group Paper & Board has introduced TerraCode, a sustainable water-based ink and coating range for paper and board packaging applications. The inks and coatings are bio-renewable content (BRC) certified and sustainably sourced. The range is also available as print-ready or via a convenient building block package.

According to the company, this innovative bio-renewable ink can be tailor made for converters’ individual needs. The TerraCode range has been designed to support a wide variety of Paper & Board applications, including Corrugated Post and Pre-print, Food Wraps, Folding Carton, Cups, Paper Bags, and Aseptic packaging. We have effectively developed a bio-renewable ink range suitable for all paper and board applications

Kim Melander, VP and General Manager of Flint Group Packaging Inks EMEA, comments, “Flint Group is acutely aware of increasing societal focus toward sustainable packaging. Our development teams have gone beyond a one-size-fits-all technology approach to design three product series that more effectively support printers’ and brand owners’ differing print and sustainability requirements. With TerraCode, we are delivering a solution, through ink and coating developments, to unlock certain sustainable package print challenges that paper and board converters and their customers are facing.”

The TerraCode range includes:

• TerraCode Bio – designed with the highest level of bio-renewable content where a typical formulation contains greater than 90% of renewable resources

• TerraCode Hybrid – a combination of renewable and conventional raw materials where a typical formulation contains in excess of 50% renewable resin content

• TerraCode Balance – based on biomass balance technology, a process that maintains the performance of existing synthetic solutions
