ATF Flexo (Association Technique Francaise de Flexographie, or the French FTA) announced the winners of FlexoStars 2009, its annual flexography awards contest. Printers using MacDermid Printing Solutions' plates fared extremely well in the contest, winning nine awards in 14 categories. Eight out of nine award-winning submissions using MacDermid plates were printed using MacDermid’s Digital Rave.

Digital Rave, introduced commercially in 2006, has been a success for MacDermid and is ideal for printers who need a high durometer digital plate for consistent, low dot-gain print performance. The contest submissions printed with MacDermid plates received four gold awards, four silver awards and one bronze award. Click here for more information about ATF Flexo and FlexoStars 2009.
