Flint optimises Rotec Smart sleeve construction

Flint Group has optimized the base sleeve of its new Rotec Smart sleeves, including the Premium version, by using advanced polyurethane materials. This has cut their weight down by up to 15 percent, which should make it easier to mount the sleeves.

In addition, the Rotec Smart Premium sleeve benefits from a further barrier layer that should give it better dimensional stability. The outer layers of the Rotec Smart sleeves use the same polyurethane as other Rotec products, which Flint says gives “excellent scratch and solvent resistance”.

The new Rotec Smart range was developed in response to the general trend toward shorter print runs and more job changes together with the demand for better print quality with lower costs as well as improved health and safety.
These new sleeves will be demonstrated at this Autumn’s Label Expo show alongside the new Rotec Eco Bridge that was announced earlier this year.
