“We’re delighted that flexographic printers worldwide can now have full access to this breakthrough plate technology,” says Chris McArdle, global marketing manager, DuPont Packaging Graphics. “Feedback from the customer trials we conducted was overwhelmingly positive, and we look forward to helping more customers improve their print quality, while they simplify their operations.”
Developed specifically for the flexible packaging/tag and label markets, DuPont Cyrel EASY plates are based upon a new polymer technology that produces higher ink transfer, color saturation and resolution. Because the flat top digital dots are built directly into the plates, they help simplify the prepress process, improving productivity and consistency. Significantly higher solid ink density has been demonstrated in customer testing, without compromising on highlights, DuPont says.
The plates are available globally for FAST/thermal and solvent processing and in engineered and smooth surfaces. Additional Cyrel EASY flexographic printing products are currently in development for the corrugated, beverage and folding carton markets.
