Security printing In security printing, several different print processes are used for the production of one product. nyloprint® plates make a valuable contribution throughout. Printing of micro text and guilloche patterns require the highest possible precision. With a resolution of up to 10,000 dpi, nyloprint® plates are utilized for these extreme requirements. nyloprint® stencil plates are used for inking-up the impression cylinder in intaglio printing presses. These plates have been developed after many years of experience in security printing and in close cooperation with customers. nyloprint® intaglio master plates – In intaglio printing, the nyloprint® gravure printing plate acts as the master form used in the galvanic processing of the actual printing plate. These plates make it possible to manufacture a complete form in one step, much quicker and easier than with previous processing methods. Many intermediate steps in the galvanic processing are no longer required, thus reducing the chance of error. Security printing – a matter of trust. Highest precision and reproduci- ble quality are the basic requirements for security printing – nylo- print® stands for this.

It accentuates the details of the design and sets them apart from the background, creating a truly eye-catching result. Due to the heat resistance properties (up to 130 °C / 266 °F), the metal based nyloprint® WA 210 / 240 and nyloprint® WS 152 / 175 are ideally suited for hot molding to produce rubber finished plates.
