Flat Top Dot-Smooth
Water Based Ink
- Medium hard inherent flat top dot flexographic printing plate
with smooth plate surface for solvent plate processing.
- Flat top dots with standard tube or a LED UV-A light exposure.
- Developed especially for the corrugated preprint and aseptic
market for use of water based inks.
- The plate has dot sharpening in the highlights and is able to
reproduce surface screenings.
Consistent print results
- Superior ink lay down on different grades of paper substrates.
- Better in highlights than most market common plates at the same solid ink density increasing shelf appeal for brand owners.
- Inherent flat top dot technology ensures minimum dot wear resulting in less dot gain compared to round top dot plates.
Reduced costs and waste
- Less plate waste thanks to better plate filling as jobs previously printed with nyloflex® ACE UP D or nyloflex® ACT D or similar plates can be combined on to one plate type
- Improving press up-time and thereby reducing costs and start-up waste through minimum dot wear resulting in less dot gain compared to round top dot plates.
- Fulfils brand owner sustainability requirements allowing printers to easily switch from printing on film to print on paper substrates with water based inks.
The nyloflex® FTM Digital 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.
Suitable for all water based printing inks (ethyl acetate content preferably below 15%, ketone content preferably below 5 %).
Especially good results are achieved with nylosolv® washout solvents. nylosolv® can be distilled and reused.
A detailed description of the imaging, exposure and finishing steps, as well as detailed information about handling and storing, can be found in the nyloflex® User Guide.
