Flint Group Flexographic Products has launched what it refers to as a digital version of its water washable flexo printing plate for the narrow-web and mid-web markets.
nyloflex Sprint Digital is said to provide a high resistance to UV-based inks and varnishes, while producing at up to 60 L/cm.
Washout of the nyloflex Sprint Digital plate, according to Flint, can be done by using tap water. The plate washout does not requires any additives or solvents, according to the company.
nyloflex Sprint Digita is described as having a processing time of less than 30 minutes for the entire platemaking process.
