Benefits

Outstanding print quality with LED exposure

  • High durometer plate for flexible packaging, especially designed for LED exposure technology like Catena-E.
  • Developed for creation of Flat Top Dots and excellent reproduction of most commonly used surface screening like Woodpecker Nano or MCWSI.
  • Significantly improved ink lay-down and high solid ink density due to distinct reproduction of surface screen patterns.
  • For outstanding print results on all film and foil substrates in reverse and frontal printing.
  • Perfection in every detail: precise reproduction of finest details in highlights.

Flexibility and efficiency

  • High productivity due to short exposure times and quick washout.
  • Excellent process stability, reliability and consistency in plate processing and in print.

Suitable equipment

The nyloflex® NEF 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® NEF is suitable for all solvent based printing inks and conditionally suitable for water based and UV inks (ethyl acetate content preferably below 15%, ketone content preferably below 5%).

Washout solvents

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