dayGraphica 4300 and 7100 – two durable, blankets crafted with surface and carcass technology

Flint Group, a global provider of print consumables, has introduced dayGraphica 4300 and dayGraphica 7100 – two durable, high performance blankets crafted with surface and carcass technology. These latest innovations strengthen Flint Group’s leading printing blanket range, empowering printers to streamline processes and minimize overall cost to print.

Designed for both traditional UV curing lamps and UV LED sheetfed applications, dayGraphica 4300 improves performance through high quality output. Its microground surface layer resists swelling and embossing from traditional UV and UV LED inks while delivering excellent dot reproduction. A thick compressible layer ensures uniform pressure across many press configurations and format sizes, and its outstanding smash recovery further boosts the value-for-money it offers.

As a combination blanket, dayGraphica 7100 reduces complexity and consumables purchases and minimizes downtime by combining the ability to print both conventional and UV inks with a single product. With advanced carcass technology, dayGraphica 7100 maintains a consistent gauge over its long lifespan. Its uniquely blended surface layer ensures excellent ink transfer and halftones.

Both blankets boast high smash resistance and rebound characteristics, reaffirming Flint Group’s commitment to providing the best printing consumables for the offset market.

Roy van der Pijl, senior commercial director for Flint Group’s offset packaging solutions, said: “In today’s sheetfed market, speed and cost are more critical than ever. Printers need blankets they can rely on. Our new dayGraphica products boost our existing range with the durability and quality our customers expect. Both blankets have been designed to provide outstanding smash resistance, ink transfer, and color reproduction and have been proven under the most demanding testing conditions.

The results speak for themselves: dayGraphica  4300 and 7100 deliver proven quality, performance and can reduce printers’ overall cost to print. Moreover, combined with our extensive sheetfed offset ink range, fount solutions, washes, and other press room chemicals, these latest products will significantly contribute to our customers’ success.”

The company develops, manufactures and markets an extensive portfolio of printing consumables and equipment, including: a vast range of conventional and energy curable inks, coatings and additives for flexographic, gravure & offset applications; pressroom chemicals and printing blankets.

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are growing similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground. Share your thoughts and plans to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
