  • Superior printing quality with sharper images, more open intermediate depths, finer highlight dots and less dot gain, i.e. larger range of tonal values therefore improved contrast
  • Increased productivity and data transfer without loss of quality due to digital workflow
  • Consistency in quality when repeating plate processing
  • Cost-effective and more environmentally friendly in processing, as no film is required


  • Copes with all requirements – starting from print on rough and uneven substrates to pressure sensitive and soft paper substrates
  • Outstanding with challenging and multi-colour designs
  • Very good ink transfer with excellent area coverage and high solid density
  • Perfect adaption to corrugated board structure that reduces the washboard effect
  • Easy and safe processing due to a wide exposure latitude and colour change
  • Very good intermediate depths
  • Less plate cleaning due to special surface properties
  • Extremely robust and durable material
  • High print run stability
  • Less mechanical wear
  • Low swelling characteristic
  • High resistance to ozone
