PLYMOUTH, MI – Four of Flint Group’s most popular offset ink series earned bio-renewable content (BRC) certification by the ink industry’s only standard.
K+E®, Arrowstar™ and Starbase™ sheet-fed series, as well as Arroweb™ heat-set inks, were certified by the Bio-derived Renewable Content (BRC) Labeling Program run by NAPIM (National Association of Printing Ink Manufacturers).
Flint Group’s certified sheet-fed inks received a BRC index of 70, signifying high levels of bio-renewable materials. In fact, the vehicle systems are based on 100 percent naturally renewable raw materials. The certified heat-set inks are formulated with various renewable resources, including soy, earning a BRC index of 30. This is a commendable rating, as a typical heat-set ink rarely surpasses 35 percent bio-renewable content.
