New Water Wash Orange Photopolymer Plates Ideal for Garment Tag Printing

12-15-2011 07:51 AM CET | Industry, Real Estate & Construction

Press release from: Inkcups Now Corp.

Inkcups Now’s water wash orange photopolymer plates are the perfect choice for use in the garment label printing process. Photopolymer plate making is a method in which an image is etched into a plate by curing the plate material with UV light, typically done with an exposure unit.

There are two types of photopolymer plates: alcohol wash plates and water wash plates, both plates come in a wide variety of materials and colors. Typically alcohol wash plate material is the better of the two because the material will harden more than water wash plates. The photopolymer plate that is harder is typically better because there is a reduced risk of folding the plate. The difference between water wash and alcohol wash is in the title: Alcohol wash plates use an alcohol based plate developer in the polymer plate making process and water wash plates use no chemical to develop the plate, only water. Water wash plates are more appealing to businesses that do not wish to keep chemicals oh hand and worry about waste disposal.

Using photopolymer plates in conjunction with garment tag printing is perfect for companies that frequently change the image of the tag. Aside from laser plate making, which is the fastest and most precise way to etch a plate, photopolymer plate making is far more cost effective method to etch a plate. Garment tag printing is more popular now more than ever due to an industry wide swing to pad printing from heat transfer. Reasoning behind the switch from heat transfer to pad printing is the lower cost, high quality print, more comfort, safe, and much faster.

Water wash orange photopolymer plates have quickly emerged as one of the best plate options for garment label printing. The hardness of the water wash orange plates is unparalleled to other water wash plates. Water wash orange plates are comparable to alcohol wash red plates. The A/W red plates are one of the hardest, highest quality plate materials available. W/W orange plates are similar to A/W red plates in terms of hardness and flexibility. The difference between the two materials is price. The cost of W/W orange plates are only a fraction of the cost of A/W red plates resulting in giving the user the same quality prints at a much lower price.
