Flint Group has reformulated its NyloflexACE plate to provide sharper detail, high contrast images and smoother vignettes. When used in combination with the NyloflexNExT exposure technology, increased solid ink density and excellent ink lay-down are said to result, in addition to production of flat top dots.
According to Flint, the new plate exhibits outstanding longevity, due to its excellent solvent resistance and improved cleaning characteristic. “Extensive field testing in more than 100 press trials worldwide reveals that fewer press stops for plate cleaning are required,” the company states. “The plates run longer, saving valuable time and substrate in the process.”
The transparency of the plates is also said to allow for easier mounting. Designed for solvent, water and most UV curable flexo inks, the new NyloflexACE plates “remain extremely stable on press”. In the prepress area, they “exhibit a more controlled back exposure, providing an even smoother plate floor with a more consistent relief”.
