Polywest Softcoat-Adapter qualified for use with DuPont™ Cyrel® Round Sleeves

dupontpolywestNEU-ISENBURG, Germany, February 27th , 2015 – DuPont Packaging Graphics, the leading supplier of endless photopolymer printing forms has tested the Softcoat-Adapters of POLYWEST under strict conditions to qualify them for the use with Cyrel® Round Thin und Classic Sleeves. One of the criteria target was that Polywest adapters show a similar behavior in regards of their printing characteristics like products of previously qualified suppliers. The visual appearance, as well as the pull-on and –off conditions and finally the adapter itself should meet their expectations.

The qualification / certification has taken place in the facilities of DuPont and during print tests in the technology center of the DFTA (German Flexo Technology Centre) in Stuttgart which had been accompanied and evaluated by DuPont specialists. After successful completion of extensive tests, POLYWEST has been announced as DuPont’s official supplier for compressive adapter.

Softcoat-Adapters are obtainable in already known levels of hardness: soft, medium and firm. The foam hardness is clearly recognizable for the operator by an inside labelling as well as by a color marking on the front side. Adapters can be supplied either with air out of an air cylinder or over a separate connection, depending on the requirements of the customer, whereas minimum wall thickness and printing peripheral conditions need to be strictly respected.
