New Ultraflex LS, PLUS and FD are specialty solvent washout solutions designed for improved processing of sheet photopolymers used in flexographic printing. Ultraflex LS is a reduced-odor high-performance formula for solvent wash photopolymer plates. Ultraflex PLUS has a more aggressive formula designed for applications requiring a stronger solvent base. Ultraflex FD is a fast-drying formula delivering the same benefits as Ultraflex with less absorption that speeds plate production. All formulas are available in 5-, 30- and 55-gallon drums.
