Asahi’s AWP Clean Transfer technology provides a viable alternative to conventional flexo printing plates. Its water washable printing plate technology does not require high temperatures or VOC-based solvents. It provides high register accuracy, making it particularly suitable for printing with a fixed color palette and enabling odorless production. In addition to saving time and money and reducing waste, it also supports energy savings while assuring exceptional quality and brilliant prints with significant improvement in overall equipment efficiency (OEE) as compared to traditional flexo plates.
