Materials

Corraflex

Corraflex compressible plate mounting materials are engineered with a proprietary microcellular impact-resistant foam that provides cushioning of the photopolymer plate in the Flexographic printing process of Corrugated boxes. The “ F “ series product is supported with a high strength polyester to ensure dimensional stability and serve as a mounting base. The “ R “ series is reinforced with a rigid grey .030” PVC. Corraflex materials are manufactured in a wide range of thickness and are available in strippable and non-strippable versions.

Product Description

Corraflex compressible plate mounting materials are engineered with a proprietary microcellular impact-resistant foam that provides cushioning of the photopolymer plate in the Flexographic printing process of Corrugated boxes. The “ F “ series product is supported with a high strength polyester to ensure dimensional stability and serve as a mounting base. The “ R “ series is reinforced with a rigid grey .030” PVC. Corraflex materials are manufactured in a wide range of thickness and are available in strippable and non-strippable versions.

As a compressible mounting carrier for corrugated printing, Corraflex displays excellent compression/recovery properties. The high-tech structure of the foam prevents board crush, fluting and print skip even at high speed. Corraflex is easy to stitch / punch and is a lighter weight material that ensures easier transport and maneuverability around the printing press.
