Nyloprint WS-S Digital steel plates are used for coating and special applications, such as the use of fluorescent inks in security printing.  The water-washable plate type provides an improved solid ink density due to brilliant ink transfer of the soft relief layer. Another benefit is the high durability for long print runs. The plate is suitable for rotary letterpress, as well as imprinting units and printing presses for special applications.

The plates excel in the reproduction of finest details without any loss of film-related quality limitations, such as dust, scratches, nicks, etc. Better reproducibility of repeat jobs with improved dimensional stability help to further enhance print quality. As a result of the elimination of film and chemicals for film processing, handling becomes much easier, and the plate processing becomes more efficient. The handling of digital data enables a secure and rapid data exchange worldwide, as well as an optimized data archive. Another important effect is the environmentally-friendly process without any films and chemicals. Besides the 0,73 mm standard thickness of the digital version, other thicknesses and a conventional plate type are also available on request.
