Please contact your MacDermid representative for details. Digital MVP 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. Digital MVP is an analog sheet photopolymer for use in labels, folding carton, multi-wall bag, preprinted liner, flexible packaging and other flexo markets that require a medium durometer plate. Digital MVP plates have ink compatibility similar to natural rubber. Plates are compatible with water and alcohol based inks containing up to 25% acetate. Digital MVP is not recommended for oil-based inks, hydrocarbon solvents, or inks with acetate ester content higher than 25%. 23 24 27 30 30
