Published on 2004-08-06. Author : SpecialChem


DuPont™ Cyrel® and DuPont™ Tyvek® Medical Packaging recently formed a strategic team of specialists to focus on developing best practice guidelines for printing DuPont™ Tyvek® with DuPont™ Cyrel® photopolymeric flexo plates.

Team members Gerald Rettberg, DuPont™ Cyrel® - packaging graphics; Henri Decker, DuPont™ Tyvek® - envelopes, graphics, consumer packaging; and Henri Morette, DuPont™ Tyvek® - medical and industrial packaging plan to issue their recommendations via a handbook to printers and converters by the end of September 2004.

All print trials were performed on four variations of DuPont™ Tyvek® material using ultraviolet, water-based, and solvent-based inks printed with both conventional DuPont™ Cyrel® digital plates and the new DuPont™ Cyrel®FAST.

"These joint efforts will lead us to approach the market from a different angle and bring us closer to our customers to better meet their needs," said Alison Syrett, European business manager - Tyvek® envelopes and graphics.

Claude Metzdorf, European business manager – Tyvek® medical and industrial packaging, said: "Aligned with the power of one DuPont, we are building a close relationship between business units, such as this expanded collaboration between Tyvek® and Cyrel®."

Key markets served include flexible packaging, multiwall bag, tag and label, folding carton, envelope, corrugated (including pre-print liner), beverage containers, and a variety of specialty applications.
