Commercial availability of DuPont™ Cyrel® Performance Plates was recently announced at Infoflex. This new family of next-generation flexographic printing plates will enable printer/converters to achieve the highest print quality at high speed that previously only gravure could match.

Imagine this… Your printed packages have stronger, more vibrant colors, smooth vignettes and sharp, clean type—and you can do this at high speed with no additional workflow steps.

That’s right… You’ll be able to achieve superior solid ink density, gain greater control over ink laydown and see a dramatic reduction in graininess (typically 50% less than standard digital plates).

DuPont™ Cyrel® Performance Plates also make it possible to shift to extended gamut printing, enabling you to dramatically improve productivity and your sustainability scorecard.

See for yourself what a difference DuPont™ Cyrel® Performance Plates will make when it comes to print quality and shelf appeal.
