  • Staccato FM25 - Uncoated Boards

    Hey All

    We currently print on uncoated boards at 25 Micron.

    Iam little concerned we are struggling to print FM25, I really think its too fine for uncoated paper, make the print look quite dark and full.

    Kodak Quote FM25 = 325lpi.

    Do you think i should go to a lower micron or even go to AM150/175 for uncoated boards

    Hopefully this makes sense.

    Re: Staccato FM25 - Uncoated Boards

    Here are some general recommendations based on typical usage by our customers:

    Publications (heatset web): 25-36 micron
    Commercial sheetfed: 20 -25 micron
    Newspaper (coldset web): 25-36 micron
    Packaging: 20-36 micron
    Specialty: 10 micron & 20.1 micron (".1" indicates first order Staccato)

    As with any high frequency halftone screening, substrate characteristics and press conditions will impact compatibility in specific cases.

    best, gordo
