AFP-HD Hard and flexible plate for half tone printing

The AFP-HD plate has been developed to satisfy the severest quality demands imposed on flexo printing today. Its high shore hardness contributes to achieving superlative quality in printing film,aluminium foil and paper.

It is no problem to produce plates with a screen ruling up to 175lpi and a tonal value range of 1% to 95%.

Open and sharp-contour reproduction of reverse image elements, minimized dot gain and the printing of tonal gradations without break-off are additional advantages of the AFP-HD plate.

Wide exposure latitude
Steep relief shoulders
Optimum colour change
Short processing time
Excellent reproduction
High resistance to ozone
High flexibility

lnks and
solvents
Irrespective of the ink system used-solvent-or water-base or UV ink-the AFP-HD plate always ensures optimum ink transfer.
It is permissible to use solvent mixtures containing a limited amount of active solvents(ethyl acetate content-preferably under 10%).
Storege of raw
plates
AFP-HD plates should be stored at a room temperature of 5-25°C and relative humidity of 55%.
Storege of used
plates
Careful cleaning of the plates after printing is recommended.
Direct exposure to sunlight, heat and high concentrations of ozone should be avoided.
