Cyrel® FAST Thermal Workflow

Cyrel® FAST Thermal Workflow—Productivity, Savings and Sustainability

DuPont™ Cyrel® FAST thermal workflow is an innovative, highly productive plate processing technology that uses solvent-free thermal processing to produce a press-ready finished plate in one hour or less.

Cyrel® FAST thermal workflow is a complete plate production system supported by complementary Cyrel® equipment. It’s the ideal workflow solution for a variety of printing applications, enabling very fast processing, cost savings, sustainability and improved press performance.

Fast Processing

Cyrel® FAST thermal workflow is the complete hardware and consumable solution, enabling:

  • improved process control, product quality and consistency
  • up to a 75% reduction in total plate-production time

Cost Savings

Cyrel® FAST thermal workflow saves time, money and materials in operations and maintenance, solvent recycling and press cleaning through:

  • reduced plate consumption by up to 15% compared to conventional platemaking
  • reduced waste treatment and disposal costs due to the use of a solvent-free process


Cyrel® FAST thermal workflow features the smallest environmental footprint available today, resulting in:

  • up to 53% savings in greenhouse gas generation
  • up to 63% reduction in non-renewable energy consumption
  • compliance with the increasing requirements of environmental legislation
  • safer, low-emission work environment compared to solvent platemaking

Improved Press Performance

Cyrel® FAST thermal workflow provides print forms that significantly improves the productivity of flexographic printing presses by enabling:

  • faster press set-up times
  • higher press speed and longer life of the print form due to better plate thickness uniformity
  • superior ink resistance
