are many instances where the inclusion of a simple print operation can
transform a product or bring new efficiencies to the manufacturing
process. The application may be a straightforward, decorative one – for
instance, graphics such as a logo or pattern, for branding sanitary
products or membranes of detergent pouches. It may also include
coatings that improve the functionality, safety or durability of paper
Flexography is the ideal process for applying these features because of its accuracy, speed and versatility. Using a flexible polymer relief plate that can be imaged relatively cheaply, it applies a wide range of media including ink, varnish, silicone and glue to a variety of substrates including plastic, metallic film, paper, cellophane and non-woven substrates.
