I would get with your ink provider and machine manufacturer. It sounds like you have excessive ink "misting". It could be from the viscosity of the ink, or you might need to add a conditioner. We had the same issue with our sheet-fed offset press until we had our ink mfg reformulate. Can I ask why you're not using water based inks on your Flexo press? Water based inks are amazing now a days and aqueous coating tech is also very advanced.

Maintain a freshly painted look on your walls by keeping them free of dust and spots. Plus, preventive maintenance means less time spent scrubbing walls later.

 

Vacuum painted walls with a soft brush attachment. Then wipe them down with a cloth-covered broom or mop (spray with a dusting agent for best results) or use an electrostatic dusting wipe. Wipe away fingerprints and other marks soon after they appear. Avoid using an excessive amount of water when cleaning painted walls.
