Elastomeric Printing Plates and Sleeves

Elastomeric (EPDM rubber) printing plates and sleeves, which popularized flexography and were later forgotten, are returning to the market. Compared to photopolymers, elastomers have a higher chemical resistance, which is why such printing forms are used for particularly long print runs using aggressive varnishes.

Continuous coating sleeves can be engraved with a special microstructure that allows the optical density of printed inks to be increased so that one ink coating replaces two separate ink coatings.

  • Linescreen up to 150 lpi
  • High resistance to aggressive varnishes and adhesives (ethyl acetate, ethyl alcohol, etc.)
  • Long service life – up to 2,000,000 print meters
