As part of its participation as a Gold Event Partner at this year’s virtual drupa show, DuPont will introduce its new Cyrel EASY R plates family as well as the DuPont Cyrel FAST 3000 TD thermal flexographic plate processor. These two new products will be presented in DuPont’s virtual showroom as well as in a live web session at 14:00 CET on 20th April.

Cyrel EASY R is the family of new formulations that maintain the benefits of Cyrel EASY flat-top dot photopolymer plates while adding on new attributes to help improve plate handling and on-press performance, especially for flexible packaging and tag and label applications. The plate family is comprised of photopolymer plates suited for thermal and solvent development and the plates come with smooth or structured surfaces to provide the best match for a large variety of print conditions.

Cyrel EASY R offers increased dot robustness for high resolution, reliable long-run print consistency as well as great ink transfer, and superb print quality on a wide variety of substrates.

Liming Zhu, general manager of Jielong Art Printing, said, “The EASY R plates enabled us to maintain a high level of customer satisfaction because the EFXR plates have a great performance on dot, line, and ink transfer.”

The Cyrel FAST 3000 TD system is the latest addition to the range of solvent-free flexographic printform processors and offers superior productivity and performance while helping reduce processing costs, processing time, and environmental impact compared to existing solvent-based platemaking methods – now at plate sizes up to 50×80 inches.

The advantages and savings are not merely virtual – they are real!

By eliminating the use of solvents – including water – from the platemaking process, the Cyrel FAST 3000 TD system produces maximum-sized plates that require no drying time and can be prepared in under 30 minutes. With the same efficiency as other Cyrel FAST systems, the 3000 TD offers flexible packaging customers and other users with large-sized jobs and high productivity needs a platemaking solution that helps reduce downtime, energy consumption, and environmental footprint.

Tucker Norton, Global Business Leader for Cyrel Solutions, said, “DuPont is very excited to showcase the many advantages of the innovative Cyrel EASY R formulations and Cyrel FAST 3000 TD processing system at drupa 2021. Although this year’s show is entirely virtual, we look forward to showing our customers and industry colleagues the powerful performance, time and cost savings, and environmental benefits of the expanded Cyrel portfolio.”

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 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.
