A plate designed specifically for use with UV inks
MacDermid's UVR was designed to swell less than other flexgraphic plates in aggressive UV inks. By their very nature, UV inks can affect flexo plate material more than solvent or water-borne inks. UVR tends to swell lessunder these conditions, giving longer lifetime and more consistent print proprierties than plates with simililar physical properties. Additionally, UVR offers excellent print resolution and low dot gain.
UVR can be processed in either solvent or thermal systems. When you need a plate with excellent resistance to UV inks, count on the company that innovates with you in mind.
• Low swell in UV inks
• Excellent resolution
• Solvent or thermal processing
• Low dot gain

UVR plates have ink compatibility similar to natural rubber. Plates are compatible with water and alcohol based inks containing up to 25% acetate, and with most commercial UV inks. UVR is not reccommended for oil-based inks, hydrocarbon solvents, or inks with acetate content higher than 25%.
UVR is a digital sheet photopolymer for use in labels, folding carton, flexible packaging and other flexo markets that require a medium-high durometer plate, in particular one with good swell resistance to UV inks.
