The flexo plate for top-quality printing with excellent ink coverage
The AFP-SF is a conventional flexographic printing plate, which has been newly developed to meet customers’ severest demands for high quality printing such as superfine detail and/or excellent ink coverage of solids on any of a wide variety of materials.
The AFP-SF plate is most suitable for use in quality flexography, flexible packaging, tag & labels, paper and pre-print.
The flexibility of the AFP-SF plate ensures a very good lay-down of plate on cylinder when mounting.
The wide exposure latitude of the AFP-SF plate ensures accurate tone-value reproduction of screens up to 150lpi, with a tonal range of 1% to 95%.
- Wide exposure latitude
- Steep relief shoulders
- Optimum color change
- Short processing time
- Excellent reproduction
- High resistance to ozone
- High flexibility
|Plate Thickness||1.14mm; 1.70mm; 2.28mm; 2.54mm; 2.72mm; 2.84mm; or 0.045″; 0.067″; 0.090″; 0.100″; 0.107″; 0.112″|
|Inks & Solvents||Irrespective of the ink system used-solvent-or water-base or UV ink-the AFP-SF plate always ensures optimum ink transfer. It is permissible to use solvent mixtures containing a limited amount of active solvents(ethyl acetate content-preferably under 10%).|
|Storage Of Raw Plates||AFP-SF plates should be stored at a room temperature of 5-25°C and relative humidity of 55%.|
|Storage Of Used Plates||Careful cleaning of the plates after printing is recommended. Direct exposure to sunlight, heat and high concentrations of ozone should be avoided.|
