MacDermid Introduces New
Plate For Use With UV Inks
MacDermid Printing Solutions, Atlanta, Georgia, has
announced the commercial introduction of a new
digital flexo printing plate designed specifically for
use with UV inks, UVR. UVR is said to be swell-resis-
tant in aggressive UV inks and also boasts low dot
gain and excellent resolution capabilities.
UVR, a 55 durometer plate, is said to have excep-
tional drape, allowing the plate to wrap around a nar-
row web cylinder with smaller repeats with relative
ease, reducing the risk of plate lift, said the company.
UVR can be dual-processed, either in conventional
solvents or in MacDermid’s LAVA Thermal Platemak-
ing System. UVR is commercially available in thick-
nesses of 0.045 inches and 0.067 inches, and in
format sizes up to 52 x 80 inches.
