Flint Group Flexographic Products has launched nyloflex ACE UP Digital, a new plate designed to offer quality and efficiency, especially with water-based inks.
Flint said modern flexo plates have to be more specialized and adapted to the substrate, as well as inks. nyloflex ACE UP Digital helps meet these requirements, Flint said.
The high durometer flexographic printing plate is especially designed for use with water-based inks in corrugated pre-print and aseptic packaging printing, as well as being suitable for UV flexo printing.
Extensive field tests have demonstrated that the new printing plate provides ‘superior printing quality’, with ‘excellent ink transfer’, especially on paper and rough substrates, resulting in high ink density and homogenous, smooth solids. nyloflex ACE UP Digital will be available to the market from the middle of February 2014.
