AFP-SQ Soft and thick plate for corrugated board and paper sacks printing

The AFP-SQ plate satisfies the severest criteria of quality in printing corrugated board,solid board and heavy-duty bags.

The surface unevenness of the printing material is compensated by the ideal shore hardness and the restoring behaviour of the AFP-SQ plate.

The wide exposure latitude of the AFP-SQ plate ensures that image elements like 3% tones and isolated lines 250µm are optimally anchored even with a relief depth of 3mm (0.118"). At the same time, intermediate depths form evenly and the relief is produced with steep shoulders.

Inks and
solvents
The AFP-SQ plate is suitable for use with flexo inks based on alcohole
or water. It is permissible to use solvent mixtures containing a limited
amount of active solvents (ethyl acetate content-preferably under 10%).
Storage of
raw
plates
AFP-SQ plates should be stored at a room temperature of 5-25°C
and relative humidity of 55%.
Storage 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.
