DuPont celebrates 40 years of Cyrel

March 13, 2014

DuPont marks the 40th anniversary of DuPont Cyrel flexographic printing systems this year by commemorating its past, celebrating its present and looking ahead to a future of continued innovation.

In 1974, DuPont introduced the first elastomeric photopolymer printing plates under the Cyrel brand to the printed packaging industry. Forty years later, DuPont has played a leading role in shaping the industry, consistently advancing flexography through its Cyrel systems and working to provide printers with the best balance of quality, productivity and sustainability to help them succeed.

“Over the last 40 years, forward-thinking printing companies have used Cyrel systems because they represent the best balance of quality, productivity and sustainability,” says John Chrosniak, global business director, DuPont Packaging Graphics.

“The flexographic printing market adopted Cyrel as the industry standard and DuPont continues to deliver innovative new products such as Cyrel Performance Plates, and invest in continued R&D to meet the needs of this growing market. We are honored to be celebrating the 40th anniversary of Cyrel this year with our customers. Together we achieved this milestone through our shared commitment to advancing flexography,” Chrosniak says.
