Product Overview

  • Solvent Plate
  • Flat Top Dot-Smooth
  • Coated Kraft Liner
  • Uncoated Kraft Liner
  • Coated Test Liner
  • Uncoated Test Liner
  • Water Based Ink
  • Digital
  • Inherently flat top dot flexo plate to cope with all challenges in corrugated post print
  • Suitable for all water based printing inks
  • Very good washboard reduction on various substrates e.g. uncoated liners or kraft liners in combination with a C and B flutes


Consistent print results

  • Stable printing of screened designs even when different impression settings are applied
  • Excellent ink transfer, with even ink laydown, thus improved and consistent print results, particularly in solid areas

Simple pre-press and plate making

  • Reduced press setup time, resulting in less start up waste of inks and substrate by up to 40%
  • Mylar and plate material cost savings up to 50% on a single colour separation
  • Saving cost due to combination of halftone images and solids on one plate instead of two plates
  • Inherent flat top dot technology with UV-A tube exposure reducing complexity and steps in the plate making process

Improve productivity and consistency

  • Less dot gain tolerances – on press the flat top dots are less impression sensitive than standard digital dots
  • Quick ready-to-press thus reduced start-up times and waste
  • Higher productivity due to superior stability at increased press speeds

Suitable equipment

The nyloflex® FTL can be processed with nyloflex® processing equipment and all similar devices and can be used with all laser systems suitable for imaging flexo printing plates.

Printing inks

The nyloflex® FTL is suitable for all water based printing inks.

Washout solvents

Especially good results are achieved with nylosolv® washout solvents. nylosolv® can be distilled and reused.
