3M Now HD Flexo Certified

Innovative leader supports new technology to drive improved print quality

3M’s lin3M logoe of Flexographic Plate Mounting Tapes are now HD Flexo certified by EskoArtwork. “HD Flexo” is currently the highest quality process in generating digital print data to produce flexo printing plates. With the use of this technical process, it is possible to achieve similar results to offset and gravure printing. High resolution, much better consistency and brilliant colours make this process extremely interesting for the packaging industry.

The certification process requires companies to consistently produce ten different print samples from five different jobs using HD Flexo technology. This focus on consistent quality mirrors 3M’s already rigorous standards for product performance, making it a natural fit for Esko’s certification program. 3M Company received Esko certification in HD Flexo for its range of 3M™ Flexographic Plate Mounting Tapes, which are known for providing optimized print quality, mounting ease and positioning accuracy, as well as easy, clean removal from plate and sleeve or cylinder.

“Customers turn to 3M for quality, innovative products that perform exceptionally the first time, every time,” said Gerald Vogler, business development manager, 3M Industrial Adhesives and Tapes Division. “It made a great deal of sense for us to become certified by Esko, a company that clearly shares our passion for high quality results.”3M Tapes
