DuPont Advanced Printing Showcases New Look, New Products at INFOFLEX 2019
WILMINGTON, DEL., MAY 06, 2019 – DuPont Advanced Printing (DuPont) kicked off their attendance at FTA Forum/INFOFLEX 2019 with remarks delivered May 5 by Sam Ponzo, Global Business Director during the FTA Annual Awards Banquet.
“The vision of DuPont Advanced Printing is to be a market leader and trusted innovation partner, enabling our customers to grow and outperform competition in the packaging and printing markets. For more than 45 years, we have been among the leaders in the flexographic printing industry and we’re just getting started. Here at InfoFlex, we are excited to share our newest innovations, including DuPont™ Cyrel® DLC, DuPont™ Cyrel® EASY BRITE Screens and the DuPont™ Cyrel® FAST 2000 TD processor,” said Ponzo.
During the show, which is held May 6-7 in New Orleans, Louisiana, visitors to Booth #713 will have the opportunity to learn more about DuPont’s most recent offerings, including Cyrel® DLC and Cyrel® EASY BRITE Screens and view samples.
The DuPont team also will share more about the Cyrel® FAST 2000 TD processor, which features several cutting-edge tools and technologies that contribute to higher plate quality, easier workflow and improved machine serviceability. Plates processed in the 2000 TD processor have better cleanout and relief depth uniformity while providing excellent fine line and dot holding. It’s a perfect fit with the Cyrel® EASY plate portfolio.
Launched in March, Cyrel® DLC is the newest addition to the award-winning DuPont™ Cyrel® family of flexographic plates. Cyrel® DLC is an innovative soft digital plate that uses a new polymer formulation especially designed for the corrugated market, allowing it to perform exceptionally with water-based inks on lower quality recycled and thinner liner board.
“This plate significantly improves solid-ink coverage on recycled board which presents more of a challenge to print on than virgin board stock,” said Bob Hannum, Corrugated Segment Manager, DuPont Advanced Printing. “Feedback from early customers is that not only is DLC performing better than standard durometer sheet and liquid plates, but also against competitive soft durometer sheet plates.”
Cyrel® EASY BRITE Screens
Cyrel® EASY BRITE screens are designed to optimize ink laydown in high-volume printing, typically seen when printing a white undercoat, or solid areas with spot colors. They contain a suite of screens that have shown to improve solid printing at volumes of 4.0 bcm and greater. There are five screens in total: two screens designed for customers without the HD Pixel+ imaging capability and three screens designed to take full advantage of HD Pixel+ imaging.
The combination of Cyrel® EASY Plates and the EASY BRITE Screens deliver:
- Better overall consistency and more consistent print of large solid areas
- Higher print quality
- Uniform ink layer
- Elimination of trail edge void
- Improved appearance of final print
- Improved opacity, reduced graininess and reduced mottle
- Flexibility, as they allow printers to go to higher quality levels using their existing setup
Bob will share more about DuPont™ Cyrel® DLC during InfoFlex Solutions Theatre, Monday, May 6, from 3:25 p.m. – 3:45 p.m. CT. Questions will be taken at the DuPont Advanced Printing Booth #713.
