We offer a highly resistant, fully light-proof UV-curing flexo system for printing plastics and outdoor applications. This range of special inks is rounded off by compatible UV protective coatings and UV primers.
Flexo printing, a high quality method, was developed in the 1960s on the basis of conventional letterpress printing. In keeping with traditional letterpress, the process uses relief plates to print.
Flexo printing is ideal for printing on elastic materials such as polyethylene foil, and other elastic plastics. Milestones in the relatively young history of flexo printing include the development of ceramic anilox rollers, photo polymer plates, anilox units, thin-plate technology, sleeve technology and, last but certainly not least, the innovative drive of forward-looking press designers and technicians.
Today’s flexo presses can print up to 12 colors simultaneously on a single central impression drum. These presses are designed with productivity in mind, allowing for quick job changes and reduced printing times; they have a small footprint and are highly efficient, allowing even the smallest print runs to be produced.
Printcolor supplies a full range of inks and varnishes for the entire flexo printing spectrum. We offer solvent-based and water-based inks, all formulated exactly to the specifications of individual flexo presses and the needs of the printer.
