22 September 2016New flexographic printing plates due from DuPontDuPont Advanced Printing (stall A21) has introduced DuPont™ Cyrel® EASY flexographic printing plates. Cyrel® EASY plates simplify the prepress process with flat top digital dots that are built directly into the plates, resulting in increased productivity and consistency.Developed specifically for flexible packaging and tag and label, Cyrel® EASY plates are based on a new polymer technology that produces higher ink transfer, color saturation and resolution. Significantly higher solid ink density has been demonstrated in customer testing, without compromising on highlights. The plates are available globally for FAST/thermal and solvent processing in engineered and smooth surfaces. Additional Cyrel® EASY flexographic printing products are currently in development for the corrugated, beverage and folding carton markets. The latest addition to the leading DuPont™ Cyrel® brand flexographic systems portfolio is advancing flexography by delivering color complexity and workflow simplicity. The plates perform exceedingly well on press, delivering high solid ink density and excellent fade-to-zero highlights. Press operations also benefit because these plates come up to color very quickly and minimize start-up waste. Cyrel® EASY is a brand new platform that uses breakthrough technology that benefits platemaking as well as printing operations. This is part of an ongoing effort by DuPont to drive progress in the flexographic printing industry by improving quality, sustainability and productivity. DuPont Advanced Printing has also launched a new anti-counterfeiting film for packaging, DuPont™ Izon® 3D security film. This new film utilizes industry-leading DuPont imaging technology and enables the integration of overt anti-counterfeiting features directly onto product packaging or labeling. The unique features of Izon® make it simple and intuitive for people to verify authentic packaging, and DuPont technology defeats counterfeiter’s attempts to duplicate.
