Toray Industries (stand 11D02) will be launching its new IMPRIMA line of waterless offset printing plates that are specifically targeted for the label/narrow web market.
The IMPRIMA LA and IMPRIMA LB plates, respectively, are optimized for increased durability and high resolution imaging, providing exceptionally consistent and high quality prints. The already commercially available plates can be an important aid in brand protection and counterfeit prevention due to their resolution and reproduction characteristics.
Besides quality advantages, waterless offset (not to be confused with dry offset) is an attractive alternative to the flexographic printing process for short and medium run applications because of the lower print form preparation cost.
The IMPRIMA line of plate products continues the long Toray tradition of offering sustainable solutions that minimize environmental impact while providing superior printing results on a wide variety of paper stock and non- absorbent substrates such as foils and synthetic materials. In addition to conserving water, waterless printing also reduces waste and eliminates the need for toxic chemicals in the printing process.
