The Right Digital Printing Plate For Corrugated Board Printing

MacDermid Digital MGC is the digital sheet photopolymer specifically designed to address all direct print corrugated board requirements.

Digital MGC sheet photopolymer is the digital version of (analog) MGC. It delivers all the benefits of MGC, plus the fine resolution and imaging capability expected from a digital photopolymer plate. And moving from analog to digital is even even easier because the plate’s high performance surface remains the same.

The soft plate durometer, 32 Shore A, provides excellent solids coverage, while its low tack and high resilience offer long and clean press runs. Digital MGC has the added capability to quickly image the finest detail providing superior print quality and cycle time savings for the plate maker.

For exceptional, direct printing on corrugated board, count on the company that says “Yes We Can”, MacDermid.
