DuPont Imaging Technologies is a market-focused global organization integrating its DuPont™
Cyrel® Packaging Graphics.
The flexographic revolution began after the invention of the photopolymer plate by DuPont
scientist. This has been followed with further innovations, which have extended the
capabilities of flexography and opened new avenues for growth.
For more than 20 years converters, printers, trade shops and companies using flexible
packaging have learned to look up to DuPont™ Cyrel® for the newest innovations in flexo
plates and systems. With the introduction of DuPont™ Cyrel® Digital Imaging System, DuPont
again demonstrates its commitment to meet the demands for higher quality and productivity in
Good packaging provides information and encourages consumers to make a purchase. The
printing on a packaging medium plays a decisive role whether it can also satisfy its many
tasks. Over the last few years, precisely in the printing of packaging materials,
fexographic printing has been able to register the highest growth rates in the industry.
Since they were introduced by DuPont™ in 1974 under the product name Cyrel®, photopolymer
printing plates have made a significant contribution to this success story.
Cyrel® is the most widely used photopolymer plate system in the flexographic printing
Today DuPont offers a comprehensive range of solutions for the flexographic printing via its
Cyrel® family of products;

DuPont Imaging Technologies has received a Technical Innovation Award for its Cyrel®FAST
Digital Flexographic Platemaking System from the Flexographic Technical Association (FTA)
and Flexo Market News magazine. The award recognizes outstanding and innovative technical
achievement that benefits the entire flexographic printing industry.
DuPont has earned this recognition because the judging team made up of expert flexo printers
and prepress providers felt the Cyrel®FAST Digital system represented a high level of
achievement and helped users of the system achieve excellence in flexography. The return on
capital employed was also an important factor in selecting the winner based on a cost-
Added Ken Lowden, Market Development Manager, DuPont Imaging Technologies, “We are extremely
proud to receive this honor for the second time from an important organization like the FTA.
It’s a key acknowledgement of our continued investment in the technological growth of
flexography, as well as our on-going leadership that began nearly 30 years ago when DuPont
introduced the first photopolymer flexo plate.”
The Cyrel®FAST Digital System allows trade shops, printers/converters and others to produce
high-quality flexo plates quickly by combining the efficiency and speed of digital
platemaking with the productivity and environmental benefits of dry, thermal plate
processing. In particular, plates processed on the Cyrel®FAST thermal developer can be made
up to 75 percent faster than conventional solvent washout systems without the use, storage
and recycling of wet chemistry.
