Our Philosophy

Since our company was founded more than 50 years ago, we have been developing sustainable printing plate materials such as our liquid APRTM resins which are processed with water.

We are proud of this heritage and are committed to continuing to develop platemaking material and equipment solutions for the printing and packaging industries that are in balance with the environment. We are eager to create new products and solutions that improve our clients’ ambient production environments, and step by step enable them to eliminate VOC-based washout platemaking from our industry.

This is our Asahi Photoproducts philosophy, and we call it “The Road to Solvent ZERO.”
