DuPont packaging graphics has introduced its DuPont Cyrel fast DFUV flexographic printing plate, designed for superior output when used with ultraviolet (UV) curable inks. The new plates improve solid ink density, reduce waste and save time and costs in applications involving high end substrates such as pressure sensitive and self-adhesive labels, shrink wrap and wrap around labels, tickets, tags and boards.
John Chrosniak, global business director, DuPont Packaging Graphics, said, ‘The new Cyrel DFUV plate was developed specifically for the narrow web printer who needs a high-performance flexographic printing plate for use with UV inks. As we advance quality, productivity and sustainability for flexographic printing, this new plate is an outstanding addition to our portfolio.’
Cyrel DFUV is a thermal process plate that prints smooth and dense solids, without compromising dot gain, highlights and resolution. Unlike other plates, which are engineered for very long print runs for wide web flexible packaging, Cyrel DFUV is specifically designed for shorter print runs using UV inks on high priced stock where minimising the startup waste is essential. Cyrel DFUV comes up to colour almost immediately and is designed for very fine screens.
