Flint Group launches water-washable coating plates

By Catherine Diamond, Associate Editor | January 16, 2014

Both nyloprint WA-S and nyloprint WA-S Digital printing plates are designed for security and banknote printing.

Flint Group Flexographic Products has launched a new water washable coating plate for UV varnishes. Both the conventional nyloprint WA-S and the nyloprint WA-S Digital printing plates are suitable for in-house plate processing in the area of security and banknote printing.

"The plates are designed for high quality demands in inline and offline print finishing as well as solid and spot coating," the company says. "The soft relief layer enables an optimal ink transfer and thus an excellent solid density of the ink. The aluminium base provides a high level of dimensional stability, which ensures outstanding register accuracy and top printing quality. The new nyloprint WA-S printing plates can be processed with tap water only without need of any additives, which makes them extremely environmentally friendly. Furthermore, they are very productive and cost effective for the user as they can be processed very fast, due to the short processing time of just 25 to 35 minutes."

The new coating plates, nyloprint WA-S and nyloprint WA-S Digital, are available to the market with immediate effect.
