DuPont Packaging Graphics Introduces New Cyrel® Flexographic Printing Plate Designed for use with UV inks, to Enhance Quality, Productivity, Sustainability


DuPont Packaging Graphics (DuPont) today announced that it has introduced the new DuPontCyrel® FAST DFUV flexographic printing plate, designed for superior output when used with ultraviolet (UV) curable inks. The new plates can improve solid ink density, reduce waste, save time and cost in applications involving high end substrates such as pressure sensitive and self-adhesive labels, shrink wrap and wrap around labels, tickets, tags and boards.

“The new Cyrel® DFUV plate was developed specifically for the narrow web printer who needs a high-performance flexographic printing plate for use with UV inks,” said John Chrosniak, global business director, DuPont Packaging Graphics. “As we continue to advance quality, productivity and sustainability for flexographic printing, this new plate is an outstanding addition to our portfolio.”

Cyrel® DFUV is a thermal process plate that comes to color quickly and prints smooth and dense solids, without compromising dot gain, highlights and resolution. Unlike other plates, which are engineered for very long print runs for wide web flexible packaging, Cyrel® DFUV is specifically designed for shorter print runs using UV inks on high priced stock where minimizing the startup waste is essential. Cyrel® DFUV comes up to color almost immediately and is designed for very fine screens.

DuPont Packaging Graphics, celebrating its 40th year of innovation, is one of the world’s leading suppliers of flexographic plate-making systems in digital and conventional formats, including DuPont™ Cyrel® photopolymer plates, Cyrel® FAST processing equipment, Cyrel® round sleeves, mounting and finishing products.  For more information about DuPont Packaging Graphics, please visit
