Flexo Plastic is known as “flexo”. Flexo is a generally very effective Coating technique that works well for Coating large areas of high-quality, solid colour. Today’s high definitionCoating technology is Flexo Plastic.
Flexo Plastic is a process that combines high speed rotation with a raised positive mirrored master of the desired print image in a rubber or polymer substance that is created using either analogue or digital platemaking technology. On the rubber or polymer plate, the image areas are elevated above the non-image areas.
The Coating plate is then secured using plate mounting tape to a sleeve or print cylinder.
Flexo Plastic Coating is aware that the packaging and label markets for Flexo coating need a high standard of performance. A different set of end-use requirements goes beyond the regular UV and water coatings that provide basic shine and protection for the work. Coatings with controlled slide angle and rub resistance fall within this category.
Additionally, resistance to chemicals, wet blocks, heat, and other factors may be required.
The Global Flexo Plastic Coating Market Accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2030.
Two UV-flexo coating materials are now available from Flint Group Narrow Web to increase the recyclable nature of shrink sleeves and pressure-sensitive labels. Currently offered in North America, these coatings will also soon be available in Europe and other continents
The Evolution Drinking Primer for shrink sleeves and the Evolution Caustic Resistant Overprint Varnish (OPV) for self-adhesive labels both employ several chemistries that are intended to boost material yield during recycling. The Association of Plastic Recyclers has acknowledged both coatings as conforming to the important guidelines for PET packaging.
