With the introduction of the new nyloflex® FSC Digital, Flint Group Flexographic Products offers a novel printing plate to the corrugated converting industry, which can contribute to lowering the total cost of ownership while increasing quality due to the unique low plate hardness of only 26 Shore A and finally making work life easier.
