Pad Printing Plates
Ideal for short to medium runs: NYLO PRINT PLATES
Nylo plates for pad printing combine economic efficiency and print quality in an impressive way for a fraction of the price.
Types of photopolymer plates:
- Alcohol washout: widely used as the polymer is less susceptible to
attack by solvents contained in inks however using the alcohol washout is
hazardous and the wastage cannot be discharged into the drainage system
- Water washout: a more biodegradable version to the alcohol plate as it is
washed out in normal water and can be disposed of in the drainage system.
- High economic efficiency
- Excellent reproduction
- Ideal for in-house production
A good alternative to production plates: THIN STEEL PLATES
Thin steel plates are ideal for longer runs and cost effective to production plates. These plates are ideal when up to 100,000 prints are required, due to the unique nature of the steel it is possible to reproduce good high quality images for this amount of prints however at a hardness of between 52-54 Rockwell C the steel is not as hardwearing as production plates as it has a courser crystalline structure.
Production plates: THICK STEEL PLATES
For the best long term results it is best to use this plate for print runs up to and exceeding 1 million prints. All our thick steel plates are 62- 64 Rockwell C in hardness giving a harder wearing and a finer crystalline structure resulting in the best print plate money can buy.
