Anderson & Vreeland released its new AVCAP product, which is a liquid photopolymer capping resin – sold under the AVantage line – designed to improve print quality and performance in flexography.
AVCAP is designed for use with softer-base liquid photopolymer plates applied within multi-wall, folding carton, corrugated and wide web printing applications. The addition of AVCAP during the platemaking process creates liquid photopolymer plates for imaging.
The 60 durometer (Shore A) photopolymer resin, according to Anderson & Vreeland, broadens overall tone range from 2-95% @ 133 lpi, improves ink transfer, reduces dot gain, and provides strong coverage of solids while minimizing fluting.
“AVCAP enables printers to control print gain under impression for high quality and process colour printing,” stated Randy Reynolds, AVantage Business Development Manager with Anderson & Vreeland.
The new liquid photopolymer capping resin is available in 20- and 40-pound weights.
AVCAP fits in the AVantage product line of liquid photopolymer resins designed for printing on corrugated board, multi-wall bags/sacks, molding applications, and for the production of hand stamps.
