MacDermid Graphics Solutions (stand 5A17) will be introducing a new medium durometer plate that utilizes the award-winning LUX® In-The-Plate™ technology.
LUX® ITP™ M is a medium durometer plate that provides all the benefits of LUX® ITP™ 60, but in a lower durometer. It is specifically designed for paper stock, preprinted liner board and other applications where a combination of high durability and excellent ink laydown is required.
MacDermid claims that the LUX® ITP™ M is an ideal plate solution for the tag and label market because of the flexibility in applications. It has surface screening capabilities, which enable ITP™ M to hold very fine level of detail; and has been designed to be processed in either solvent or LAVA™ thermal processing systems.
LAVA™ NW platemaking equipment is specifically designed for the tag and label industry. The smaller equipment footprint and faster processing time compared to solvent, make this an ideal solution for the narrow web market. LAVA™ NW represents the latest thermal technology available and MacDermid’s continued commitment to continuous innovation with its thermal program.
