No Solvents Required

Asahi AWP™ CleanPrint water-washable flexographic plates are processed without VOC-based washout solvents, they use less energy in the production process and deliver a faster time to press than VOC solvent-based plates. Asahi´s CleanPrint water-washable flexographic photopolymer plate technology’s ability to deliver high-quality print performance is a result of its engineered photopolymer chemistry design. The water-wash technology also features a low surface energy plate resulting in higher printing press efficiency and less printing wastage. All of these elements make them the most sustainable flexographic plates in the industry. In addition, AWP™-DEW CleanPrint plates deliver extremely high-quality print due to their precise registration and ability to deliver perfect printing balance between highlights and solids.

Asahi will be showing two members of the water-wash CleanPrint family:

  • AWP™-DEW plates deliver extremely high-quality print due to their best-in-class finest highlights and good balance with homogenous solids.
  • AWP™-CleanFlat plates are our new out-of-the-box water-washable FlatTop plate solution with high-quality printing press consistency for longer runs, including the usage on abrasive substrates. The solution also delivers an efficient print production, reduced print waste and good solid ink density.
  • At the same time, both plates result in a sustainable improvement of the printer’s carbon footprint, increasing print efficiency.
