Plates are compatible with water and alcohol based inks containing up to 25% acetate. Digital MAX is not recommended for oil-based inks, hydrocarbon solvents, or inks with acetate ester content higher than 25%. Digital MAX is a digital sheet photopolymer for use in labels, folding carton, multi-wall bag, preprinted liner, flexible packaging and other flexo markets that require a hard durometer plate. Ink/Solvent Compatibility Plate processing* Digital MAX can be processed in either solvent or thermal systems. For solvent processing, use with SOLVIT® QD is recommended. Most other safe-solvent solutions may be used. Processing times for any particular job are determined by equipment, copy requirements and plate thickness.
