Print China 2015 Stand 41041DuPont to feature new Cyrel Flexographic printing innovationsDuPont Packaging Graphics will feature its newest innovations in DuPont Cyrel flexographic systems at Stand 41041 during the 2015 International Printing Technology Exhibition of China, which will be held at the Guangdong Modern International Exhibition Center from 7 to 12 April. DuPont Cyrel equipment, plates and workflow solutions are designed to optimize quality, productivity and sustainability for flexographic printers worldwide.
The new Cyrel FAST 1001 TD is for narrow web printers who want a more efficient and more sustainable solvent-free processorDuPont will highlight its newest Cyrel FAST DFUV flexographic printing plate that is designed specifically for the narrow web printer who needs a high-performance plate for use with ultraviolet (UV) curable inks. It is a thermal process plate that comes up to color quickly minimizing startup waste and prints smooth and dense solids, without compromising dot gain, highlights and resolutions. This new plate can improve solid ink density, reduce waste, save time and cost in applications involving high-end substrates such as pressure sensitive and self-adhesives labels.

DuPont Cyrel FAST flexographic systems use a dry thermal technology for plate development, completely eliminating conventional solvents and aqueous washout solutions. The new Cyrel FAST 1001 TD is for narrow web printers who want a more efficient and more sustainable solvent-free processor. The Cyrel FAST 1001 TD is a small format thermal platemaking system that has been redesigned and streamlined for improved dimensional stability and efficiency. The Cyrel FAST 1001 TD uses a unique thermal management system and multiple roller design to improve clean-out, provide more consistent relief depth and a more uniform floor, especially with thin gauge (.045-inch) plates often used for tag and label applications. DuPont also will display the Cyrel FAST 1000TD solvent-free flexographic plate processor at the show.

In 1974, DuPont introduced the first elastomeric photopolymer printing plates under the Cyrel brand to the printed packaging industry. Forty one years later, DuPont has played a leading role in shaping the industry, consistently advancing flexography through its Cyrel systems and working to provide printers with the best balance of quality, productivity and sustainability to help them succeed.
