May 24, 2024  By PrintAction Staff



XSYS introduces two new plates under the newly established Nyloflex Eco brand.

The Nyloflex Eco ACT is a medium hard photopolymer flexo plate. It is compatible with both tube and LED exposure systems. It has been specifically developed for paper and board applications. The Nyloflex Eco FAC is a soft photopolymer flexo plate specifically developed for corrugated post-print.

The polymer layer incorporates 19-29 per cent renewable raw materials.

“The market launch of the Nyloflex Eco product series marks an important milestone in our efforts to contribute to a more sustainable industry”, says Dr. Eva Freudenthaler, vice president, technology. “Within the next 12-18 months Nyloflex Eco ACT and Nyloflex Eco FAC will replace their predecessor products that will be phased out. We have also embarked on a long-planned project to standardize all Nyloflex flexo plate colours over the coming 24-36 month towards a bright, clear, light blue hue, as already known from some high-performance plates for flexible packaging application. This colour harmonization allows for more efficient production processes and a reduction of waste which will further improve the carbon footprint of our products.”
