Hanover, Germany -- ContiTech Elastomer Coatings has added four flexo printing plates to its product portfolio, the German company said in a Nov news release.
â€œContiTech benefits from its wide-ranging expertise in the offset printing business and thanks to a brand-new process developed in-house, ContiTech is now in a position to manufacture flexo printing plates for flexible packaging by the roll, on an industrial scale without the use of any solvents,â€ explained Armin Senne, Business manager for flexo products at ContiTech Elastomer Coatings.
â€œThis gives ContiTech a crucial market edge - not just when it comes to environmental friendliness,â€ he added. â€œContitech is able to tailor its product to individual customer requirements, in terms of both product thickness and order size, while ensuring an outstanding price-performance ratio.â€
ContiTech Elastomer Coatings said it caters to a broad market with its four flexo printing plates - CONTI Laserline CSX and CSC, CONTI Laserline CCX for direct printing on corrugated board, and CSL coating plate. The CONTI Laserline CSC printing plate has an integrated compressible layer that does away with the need for expensive foam adhesive tapes during mounting.
â€œOur new product range provides cost savings for printers interested in cutting out expensive adhesives,â€ said Senne. Both plates consist of an EPDM cover layer that can be engraved directly. This opens up a completely new range of applications, ContiTech said.
