No solvents are required for Asahi water-washable flexographic plates

Asahi AWP CleanPrint water-washable flexographic plates are processed without Voc-based washout solvents, they use less energy in the production process and deliver a faster time to press than Voc solvent-based plates. Asahi’s CleanPrint water-washable flexographic photopolymer plate technology’s ability to deliver high-quality print performance results from its engineered photopolymer chemistry design. The water-wash technology also features a low surface energy plate resulting in higher printing press efficiency and less printing wastage. These elements make them the most sustainable flexographic plates in the industry. In addition, AWP-DEW CleanPrint plates deliver extremely high-quality print due to their precise registration and ability to deliver perfect printing balance between highlights and solids.

Asahi will show two members of water-wash CleanPrint family

  • AWP-DEW plates deliver extremely high-quality print due to their best-in-class finest highlights and good balance with homogenous solids.
  • AWP-CleanFlat plates are our new out-of-the-box water-washable FlatTop plate solution with high-quality printing press consistency for longer runs, including the usage on abrasive substrates. The solution also delivers efficient print production, reduced print waste and good solid ink density.
  • At the same time, both plates result in a sustainable improvement of the printer’s carbon footprint, increasing print efficiency.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia.is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
