Flint Group has expanded its range of Rotec Compressible sleeves with a new Extra Firm version that offers a hardness level of 70 Shore A to complement the existing Medium (50 Shore A) and Firm (60 Shore A) hardness levels.
This follows customer feedback for an extra option to balance the level of hardness and compressibility that’s necessary for optimum print quality. The Rotec Compressible sleeves have a round, closed-cell polyurethane structure that is compressible, with this option using new materials to increase the hardness level.
Gina Wienbracke, product manager for Rotec sleeves and adapters, explained: “Flint Group really listens to the printers and optimizes 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.”
