223

DuPont Advanced Printing (DuPont) has announced the commercial availability of the newest addition to the award-winning DuPont Cyrel plate platform, the DuPont Cyrel DLC.

Cyrel DLC is an innovative soft digital plate that uses a new polymer formulation developed especially for the corrugated market. Its low durometer is designed for better printing on lower quality recycled and thinner liner corrugated board using water-based inks.

“The DuPont Cyrel DLC plate significantly improves solid ink coverage on recycled board which presents more of a challenge to print on than virgin board stock,” said Bob Hannum, manager – North America Corrugated Segment, DuPont Advanced Printing. “Feedback from early customers is that not only is DLC performing better than standard durometer sheet and liquid plates, but also against competitive soft durometer sheet plates.”

“Cyrel DLC has been one of the most unique advancements we can offer our customers,” said Jeff Francis, manager – Holland Graphics Division at Dynamic Dies. “This new plate seemed almost too good to be true.”

Delivering the ink from the plate to the substrate in a way that provides excellent solid ink coverage, while not crushing the board with over-impression, has been a challenge – but is now achievable with the Cyrel DLC plate. Edge crush test (ECT values) are kept virtually unchanged after printing.

The new Cyrel DLC plates come with features that can benefit corrugated printers. Its superior solid printing allows for lower volume anilox, which can help provide greater ink savings and use of Cyrel DLC plate can result in increased press impression latitude. The new product can help printers minimize losses as it helps virtually in no board crush with over impression. It also helps in better barcode accuracy and excellent positive and reverse print areas.

Cyrel DLC is now available in market. To find out more, visit cyrelforcorrugated.com.

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.
