||Hard and flexible plate for halftone printing
The AFP-HD plate has been developed to satisfy the severest quality demands imposed on flexo printing today. Its high shore hardness contributes to achieving superlative quality in printing film,aluminium foil and paper.
It is no problem to produce plates with a screen ruling up to 175lpi and a tonal value range of 1% to 95%.

Inks and Solvents
Irrespective of the ink system used (solvent, water-based, or UV ink) the AFP-HD plate always ensures optimum ink transfer. It is permissable to use solvent mixtures containing a limited amount of active solvents (ethyl acetate content-preferably under 10%).
Storage of Raw Plates
AFP-HD plates should be stored at a room temperature of 5-25°C and relative humidity of 55%
