1. Reduce your total platemaking time to just 40 minutes

Flenex FW water-washable plates reduce platemaking processing times to less than 40 minutes, 300% faster than leading solvent systems and 1.5 times faster than current thermal and water-wash technologies. Producing more plates in less time means more time on press and a dramatic increase in output per shift.

2. Produce consistent, high quality flexo plates

The Flenex FW water-washable plate system does far more than simply eliminate the need for solvents and wicking cloths. It delivers longer runs while producing a consistent 200 lpi at 4,400 dpi, 1% process dot structure for superb high quality print, depending on the conditions.

The rubber-based compound means a 1% flat top dot can be achieved without complex systems to eliminate oxygen, and results in lower dot gain. In addition, better ink transfer produces noticeably cleaner and brighter print results.

3. Durability to support longer performance on press

Flenex FW is proven to deliver significant improvements in plate durability and reductions in plate swell, thanks to its unique technology. This means each plate is able to perform longer on press, resulting in greater overall profitability.

4. Improve your environmental performance

The processing of Flenex FW plates only requires a mild detergent, therefore avoiding the use of harsh chemicals or high cost solvents, and they are also ultra-durable, so you can get the most out of any one plate, reducing the levels of waste.
