DuPont™ Cyrel® and DuPont™ Tyvek® Medical Packaging (www.graphics.dupont.lu ) recently formed a strategic team of specialists to focus on developing best practice guidelines for printing DuPont™ Tyvek® with DuPont™ Cyrel® photopolymer flexo plates.
Team members Gerald Rettberg, DuPont™ Cyrel® - packaging graphics; Henri Decker, DuPont™ Tyvek® - envelopes, graphics, consumer packaging; and Henri Morette, DuPont™ Tyvek® - medical and industrial packaging plan to issued their recommendations via a handbook to printers and converters.
All print trials were performed on four variations of DuPont™ Tyvek® material using ultraviolet, water-based, and solvent-based inks printed with both conventional DuPont™ Cyrel® digital plates and the new DuPont™ Cyrel®FAST. Key markets served include flexible packaging, multiwall bag, tag and label, folding carton, envelope, corrugated (including preprint liner), beverage containers, and a variety of specialty applications.
