Developments in the flexo plate sector have culminated in what we believe to be a superlative technology which has the rare combination of environmental, cost and quality benefits, when converting print designs from gravure to flexo. Asahi AWP Plates.

The AWP™-DEF/DEW Asahi Water Washable Plates eliminates the need for VOC solvents during their production, thus reducing production time and unwanted odours on the plate. Waste reduction and energy reduction are definitely factors to promote during this time of increased scrutiny on the packaging industry.

Asahi AWP plates offer excellent ink transfer, precise registration, reduced make-ready waste on press, improved plate stability and resolution – comparable with gravure.

We would welcome the opportunity to work together to convert your designs from gravure to flexo.
