Hello,

i have question about flexo inks for printing on PP material, material is named Fruitag and it is used as tag on bags with food.
Face of material is PP and the other side is thermo sensitive, so i cant turn on UV dryers because its activate that thermo sensitive side.
So i need some solution that inks drying without dryers, can someone recomended water based inks or something else that will dry fast enough on PP material?
Second problem is that print must be continuous and print is all around of tag, so i have problem that i cant cut photopolymer plate that precise that fit on edges,
and i dont have cylinders for sleeves. Is there any way that i can sealing that gap between edges of plate?
Machine that i have is flexo KDO machine with UV dryers and i use photopolymer plates.

Thanks in advance.

Best Regards,

Color is in demand in all types of documents, making color management a critical part of Digital Printing 5.0. Managing color on one device/press can be an easy task with the correct tools and processes. But managing color to ensure printed pages are consistent and repeatable across the different substrates and color gamuts of toner and inkjet can be a much bigger challenge. Properly implemented color management workflows can help achieve consistent color results across multiple devices. Although many end-customers are claiming satisfaction with “pleasing color,” two challenges are still in play. Link to Article
