The FLEXINAD research project aims to provide recommendations for printers in order to avoid printed defects due to the adhesion problem of the flexographic ink and provide procedures if faults occur.
Most of printed defects are due to strength problems like cohesion and adhesion of ink on substrate and between two inks. In this project, the main causes of printed defects due to the adhesion of the first ink layer on the substrate will be studied.
There are different steps in this project:
The research partners working on the project are PTS (coordinator, Germany), Kenniscentrum Papier en Karton - KCPK (Netherland), and CELABOR (Wallonia).
The project has started in May 2012 and will last 2 years.
