Flint Group introduces new letterpress plate with soft layer

Proven quality and new advantages - Flint Group Flexographic Products, as the global supplier of nyloprint® letterpress printing plates, introduces the new letterpress plate, nyloprint® WF-S. The new plate stands for “Water-washable Film based - Soft” and replaces the nyloprint® WF-M printing plate type from November 2015.

Compared to the previous type, the new water-washable nyloprint® WF-S film-based plate has
an even softer plate surface for more flexible applications. Moreover, the soft surface provides improved ink transfer resulting in optimal ink lay-down, especially on rough surfaces. The nyloprint® WF-S plate is particularly suitable for special applications such as blister pack printing but also for rotary letterpress, coating units and imprinting units. Beyond that, the new letterpress plate shows all advantages of the nyloprint® WF plate range: very efficient and fast plate processing, as the reproduction is completed within 25-35 min. Additionally, it offers a wide exposure latitude combined with high intermediate depths and very good durability for long print runs.

The nyloprint® WF-S plate is available in thicknesses of 0.70, 0.80, and 0.95 mm. A digital version of the film-based plate with all the advantages of digital processing is also available on request.
