XSYS announces the launch of nyloflex® FTM Digital flexo plate for printing with water-based inks

Suitable for printing on paper substrates to meet sustainability demands

•             Enables printers to switch from solvent to water-based inks

•             Offers superior ink laydown and reduced costs

The new nyloflex® FTM Digital plate with inherent flat top dots has been developed specifically for flexographic printing with water-based inks on different grades of paper substrates. The trigger for the development of this new plate solution is the acceleration in the demand for more environmentally friendly packaging production. As the market moves towards more sustainable substrates in response to those demands, XSYS is introducing the nyloflex® FTM Digital plate which enables printers to use water-based inks on coated and uncoated paper for aseptic food packaging and corrugated preprint liner.

“This latest addition to the nyloflex® plate portfolio will have a broad appeal for printers serving different segments of the packaging production wishing to move to a more sustainable operation, but still retain the ability to produce the highest quality products,” said Simon Top, Product Manager at XSYS. “The nyloflex® FTM Digital will help to fulfil the brand owners’ sustainability requirements by allowing printers to switch from printing on plastic film materials to printing on paper substrates with water-based inks.”
