Overview

High Opacity White

  • Rotary screen opaque white flexo replacement
  • Reduce ink reticulation and improve ink lay
  • Maintain flexo press speed
  • No expensive screen heads
  • More efficient job changes than screen
  • Cleaner option than screen
  • Available in a range of opacity levels

The HOW engraving was developed over twelve months in collaboration with Sandon Global’s key printing partners in the flexographic industry. The goal was to achieve rotary screen quality ink laydown with white UV ink. Sandon moved away from the conventional 30 engraving and achieved an anilox engraving that far our performs its outdated predecessor and easily handles the viscous and difficult nature of UV white ink.

Sandon achieved in the HOW, a flowing effect and a high level of control which smoothly lays ink down without pin-holing and reticulation, making printing heavy white designs far easier than ever before.

Additionally, the press can run at normal speeds, and in some cases even enhance press speed as the ink releases more easily as the press runs faster, without flooding the printing plate.
