Liquid Capping Resin Dramatically Improves Print Quality and Performance

AVantage® Capping Resin (AVCAP) is designed for use with softer-base AVantage® liquid photopolymers to produce capped printing plates that dramatically improve print quality and performance.

AVCAP is formulated for multi-wall, folding carton, corrugated applications and wide web applications. The addition of AVCAP during the platemaking process creates liquid photopolymer plates that can image the finest details while maintaining clean, open reverses.

The 60 durometer (Shore A) AVCAP resin broadens overall tone range capability, improves ink transfer, reduces dot gain, and provides excellent coverage of solids while minimizing fluting.

AVantage® liquid photopolymer resins are designed to meet the increasing demands of the packaging industry for improved print quality and consistency while controlling costs and reducing environmental impact.
