MacDermid Printing Solutions has introduced two new photopolymer printing plates, MVP and Digital MVP. The company says the MVP, a medium durometer plate, has exceptional resilience, allowing for faster press speeds and reduced bounce, resulting in overall higher quality print and increased productivity. Digital MVP delivers all of the benefits of MVP, plus the fine resolution and imaging capability expected from a digital photopolymer plate. MVP and Digital MVP are commercially available in thicknesses from 0.045 in. (1.144mm) to 0.112 in (2.84mm), and in format sizes up to 52 x 80 inches (1,321 x 2,032 mm).
