Benefits

Advantages of nyloprint® Digital

  • Reproduction of finer details and less dot gain due to digital imaging
  • High dimensional stability
  • No defects caused by dust and damaged films
  • No data loss during transfer
  • Smoother plate surface to achieve higher ink density
  • Highly consistent especially when repeating plate processing
  • Cost effective and environmentally friendly as no film needed and no chemicals needed for film development

Highest print quality

  • Excellent solid density due to brilliant ink transfer of the soft relief layer
  • High register accuracy due to the dimensional stability of the aluminium base
  • Very good durability for long print runs
  • Reliably reusable for repeat orders

Efficient, consistent and fast plate processing

  • Highly productive and cost-effective due to plate processing within 25-35 min
  • Reduced downtimes on press due to fast replacement of plates
  • Wide exposure latitude combined with open reverses
