Europe: Flint Group launches lightweight sleeve


Flint Group launches its rotec Lightweight Sleeve for conventional plate mounting with adhesive tapes.

Offering weight savings up to 40% compared to standard sleeves on the market, this new generation of hard-coated sleeves cater for the mid to wide web and pre-print sector.

Maximum weight limits for components handled in the pressroom, shorter and easier press setups, or even missing adapter configurations can easily be managed in the future.

“The latest developments in the sector of polyurethane foams made it possible to combine among the highest thermal and dimensional stability with less density,” says Nico Jasper, product manager and technical sales sleeves.

The entire sleeve edge is sealed with an aluminum plate, which protects the sleeve from exposure of cleaning liquids, inks or solvents and prevents from unnatural diameter growth of the sleeve.

The sleeve is available in rotec Ω-Surface Technology for use of solvent-based.

It is available with a wall thickness starting at 19 mm and face lengths up to 2835 mm.
