DuPont Packaging Graphics, known for its Cyrel® brand of flexographic plates and systems and its commitment to advancing flexography, will demonstrate new integrated workflows and present new information about the environmental sustainability of various printing processes at the India Label Show 2008 to be held in New Delhi, Dec. 3 – 6. 

Brand owners, print buyers and printers are increasingly concerned with environmental sustainability and the display will feature the results of two peer-reviewed Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) studies recently published by DuPont. The results of the studies indicate that printers can reduce their non-renewable energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions through the use of flexography and Cyrel® FAST thermal plate production. The full report, Life Cycle Assessment:  Flexographic and Rotogravure Printing Comparison & Flexographic Plate Imaging Technologies, is available at www.cyrel.com.

DuPont Packaging Graphics also will demonstrate live, for the first time in India, the revolutionary Cyrel® FAST system, the first thermal processing system for flexographic photopolymer plates that eliminates the use of solvents and reduces platemaking time to less than one hour. In addition, DuPont will showcase Tyvek® graphic materials and Cyrel® DFQ, a new high durometer Cyrel® FAST thermal plate that offers fine highlights, sharp detail and excellent color saturation.

“Modern flexography is increasingly the process of choice for high impact packaging graphics and DuPont is working with other leading industry suppliers such as Siegwerk and EskoArtwork to develop innovative technologies that help to improve quality and productivity,” said Vijay Ramashandran, marketing manager – DuPont Packaging Graphics Asia Pacific.  “Visitors to India Label will be able to see and touch the most innovative solutions behind the Cyrel® brand of products that demonstrate our commitment and leadership in both packaging and flexography.”
