MacDermid Introduces UVR Flexo Plate

March 25, 2013
By

MacDermid Printing Solutions announced the commercial introduction of a new digital flexo plate specifically designed for use with UV inks. Dubbed the UVR plate, it is swell-resistant to aggressive UV inks and has low dot gain.

According to MacDermid, the 55 durometer plate is ideal for the narrow web market where UV is used heavily. UVR plates can be processed with conventional solvents or in MacDermid’s LAVA thermal platemaking system. The plate is also compatible with the company’s LUX platemaking process, which allows for smaller printed dots and more durability on-press. According to the company, the UVR plate also has comparable performance when paired with water-based inks as well.

UVR is commercially available in thicknesses of 0.045 in. (1.14mm)  and 0.067 in (1.70mm), and in format sizes up to 52 x 80 inches (1,321 x 2,032 mm).
