NEU-ISENBURG, Germany—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 were announced in the live web session that happened on April 20 and will be presented in DuPont’s virtual show room.
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 come with smooth or structured surface 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 plate making methods—now at plate sizes up to 50-in. x 80-in.
By eliminating the use of solvents—including water—from the plate making process, the Cyrel FAST 3000 TD system produces maximum-sized plates that require no drying time and can be prepared in less than 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 plate making 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.”
