DuPont Cyrel Solutions introduces the new Cyrel Lightning plate family at the FTA’s fall conference (October 03-06) in Frisco, TX.

These new printing plates are optimized for UV-LED exposure systems, such as the Esko XPS Crystal, to make full use of these systems’ capabilities. The benefits of the plates include an optimized match between access time and plate performance without compromising print quality.

Previously, exposure settings on LED units often had to be adjusted for either higher quality or shorter access time. Cyrel Lightning plates challenge this, as they were formulated from the ground up with UV-LED exposure characteristics in mind.

“Cyrel Lightning plates use chemistries with tailored UV profiles to achieve tunability between surface- and through-cures. This innovation enables a balanced cure that can be tailored to the unique dynamics of a scanned LED exposure sequence. At the same time, it provides sufficient through-cure using a finely tuned UV absorption profile,” says Suniti Moudgil, global technology leader at DuPont.

Cyrel LSH is the first of a new range of photopolymers plates, and will be available in 045 and 067 gauges. It is solvent processable and comes with certified exposure recipes in the latest software of Esko XPS Crystal units.

Cyrel LSH is a hard durometer plate with smooth surface, suitable for advanced surface screenings and optimized for a broad range of substrates and clean press runs in flexible packaging, tag & label and paper printing applications.
