Understand how the downgauging in the corrugated printing can generate benefits for the value chain
Downgauging is known among packaging customers to be one of the ways to become more sustainable, and the same logic can be applied to the printing plate as well. The thinner your plate is, less material will be used to make that plate, which makes it more environmentally sustainable since less material used means less waste.
The environmental impact of imaging and processing a .155” plate compared by DuPont to a .250” plate, has a 25% lower non-renewable energy use and 27% lower global warming potential impact.
