CleanPrint improves process efficiency and cost, and offers a sustainable environmental business solution in flexo platemaking without VOC-based washout solvents. Asahi’s broad range of flexographic plate solutions offer winning solutions for all types of substrates and label/packaging applications.
CleanPrint is a flexographic plate technology specifically engineered by Asahi. It features low plate surface energy that transfers all remaining ink to the printed substrate, reducing press cleaning stops and creating a significant efficiency in productivity and profitability. These plates deliver very high resolution with fine screen rulings and minimum dots fading out to zero, enabling a broader color gamut and seamless implementation of fixed colour palette printing. CleanPrint plates are a key element of the world-first automated platemaking solution with never-before-seen levels of automation, delivering plates from digital imaging to press-ready plates.
Our CleanPrint plates result in a higher printing press efficiency (OEE).
