Stripped, photopolymer or laser engraved. Choose the most efficient finishing type for your particular product.
Digital photopolymer varnishing plates
We help you achieve the highest possible production accuracy when the emphasis is on picture definition, registration and conversion of complex subjects.
Your plates are imaged on a high speed laser. They then have to be exposed and washed before they are ready. 97% of the solvents employed for this purpose are recovered.
We use brand-name photopolymer varnishing plates from Dupont and Flint.
|Thickness available:||1.16 mm|
|Maximum size:||Format 3B|
Laser engraved elastomer varnishing plate
The nonplus ultra in terms of precision: for subjects with very fine details, fonts and dots. Made by direct laser engraving: chemistry free with up to 5080 dpi resolution.
The elastomer material is unbreakable and user friendly while the laser image withstands even severe stresses without any changes. Die EPDM surface is resistant to UV and ozone.
We use one of the two materials:
Laserline CSL (for offset applications) or Laserline CAL (with an aluminium substrate), both manufactured by German elastomer specialist ContiTech.
|Available thickness:||1.15 mm, 1.35 mm, 1.70 mm (CSL)|
1.15 mm, 1.35 mm (CAL)
|Available sizes:||maximum width 1600 mm|
Plotted and stripped varnishing plates
Polyester based varnishing plates with a polymer surface are ideal for relatively simple subjects like cartons with recesses, gluing flaps or other geometric shapes. The subject is cut to size with CAD accuracy on a flatbed plotter. The cutting thickness is precisely defined and adapted to the material. The unvarnished sections are then removed by hand. We can also convert your varnish plate with bars on request.
We stock a wide range from several branded manufactures such as Folex, Flint, etc. With polyester or aluminium substrates or for applications with UV or aqueous varnish.
|Available thickness:||1,15 mm, 1,35 mm, 1,95 mm|
