Field tests have demonstrated that the new printing plate provides a superior printing quality. The excellent ink transfer, especially on paper and rough substrates, results in high ink density and homogenous, smooth solids. Defined highlight areas, text and line work as well as barcodes are sharply defined. The plate displays a long run life and stability in printing, which results in a significantly increased efficiency. The low surface tack ensures a reduced attraction of paper dust and dirt, enhancing productivity and durability of the plate. It also allows stacking of the clichés without interleaves, thus further improving the storage properties.
The new digital photopolymer printing plate, nyloflex ACE UP Digital will be available to the market by the middle of February 2014.
