www.byebyeanilox.com 866-APEX-USA UniFlexGT T 1 Lost track? One set for solids, another for combos, still another for process work? Multiply that by the number of stations required for a given job and you’ve got a real planning headache. UniFlexGTT lets you say goodbye to all that. SLASH YOUR INVENTORY UniFlexGT T can replace your entire stockpile of conventional anilox with typically just two or three surface options – or sizes – depending upon your requirements. No matter what your jobs require, we’ve got you covered with a total range of five GTT options: “ X L” for high opacity and solids; “L” for solid and screen combos; “M ” or “S ” for line, combo, vignette and process; “XS” for superfine process work. It’s that simple. DON’T BOTHER WITH THE MATH Complex BCM/LPI calculations are practically eliminated with UniFlexGTT . Just pick your choice of UniFlexGTT size for the job at hand and you’re up and running. STREAMLINE YOUR STICKYBACK Gone are the variables of fine-tuning multiple tape hardnesses. With UniFlexGTT , a medium or soft grade stickyback handles virtually all flexo jobs. How many anilox rolls are in your inventory? SIMPLIFY STANDARDIZATION ONE GTT ROLL/SLEEVE CAN DO THE WORK OF TWO, THREE — OR EVEN MORE — CONVENTIONAL ANILOX. JOB TYPE Solid, line & reverse SUBSTRATE Film INK Solvent-based ANILOX SCREEN 460 LPI VOLUME 4.6 BCM REMARKS Haloing, pinholing, mottling, weak density. 60° Hex cell anilox JOB TYPE Solid, line & reverse SUBSTRATE Film INK Solvent-based GTT SIZE UniFlex “L” REMARKS Haloling and pinholing all but eliminated; solid densities increased. UniFlexGTT REAL WORLD PROOF With conventional hexcell anilox technology, there are literally hundreds of line/volume combinations possible to employ the right surface for a given job – requiring large anilox inventories. With GTT, most printers require only two or three “sizes” to replace their entire anilox inventory.
