Film Gives High-End Look

COMPUcal Excel 10442 is a UL-recognized 1.0-mil matte topcoated clear polyester film designed for high-performance label applications. Called ideal for use as a matte overlaminate for achieving a high-end look.

Make Water-Based Plates

Aqua Concept 860 WP, designed for the label print market, is a multifunction unit for the production of photopolymeric, water-based plates, both letterpress and flexo UV. Works with PVC or metal-based plates, both water-washable. This capability is said to reduce significantly the environmental impact of the platemaking process, because it is no longer necessary to use any kind of solvent to wash the plate. Maximum size of the plate is 66 x 86 cm, and limited footprint allows installation in smallest production sites, company says.
