MAXimum Print Quality Spanning a Broad Range of Package Printing
MacDermid MAX is the newest and best performing hard, analog sheet photopolymer plate from MacDermid. It is designed to deliver the MAXimum print benefit – low dot gain in screen/process color printing with smooth ink lay down for bold solids.
MAX plates work well with a wide variety of substrates and ink. This 60 durometer plate has excellent drape characteristics, making it well suited for applications involving small-diameter cylinders on narrow web presses. MAX is also an extremely low tack plate, which allows long, clean running print performance.
For eye-popping highlights, from the smallest to largest repeat lengths, count on the company that says “Yes We Can.” MacDermid.

Processing times for any particular job are determined by equipment, copy requirements and plate thickness.
MAX plates have ink compatibility similar to natural rubber. Plates are compatible with water and alcohol based inks containing up to 25% acetate. MAX is not recommended for oil-based inks, hydrocarbon solvents, or inks with acetate ester content higher than 25%.
MAX is an analog sheet photopolymer for use in labels, folding carton, multi-wall bag, preprinted liner, flexible packaging and other flexo markets that require a hard durometer plate.
