SIMPLIFY Standardization BENEFITS 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. GTT helps you say goodbye to all that. SLASH YOUR INVENTORY GTT can replace your entire stockpile of conventional anilox with typically just two or three surface options – or GTT ”sizes” – depending upon your requirements. No matter what your jobs require, we’ve got you covered with a total range of five GTT options: “XL” for high opacity and solids; “L” for solid and screen combos; “M” or “S” for line, combo, vignette and process; “XS” for superfine/ high-definition process work. It’s that simple. DON’T BOTHER WITH THE MATH Complex BCM/LPI and cm3/m2 plus L/cm calculations are practically eliminated with GTT. Just pick your choice of GTT size for the job at hand and you’re up and running. STREAMLINE YOUR MOUNTING TAPE Gone are the variables of fine-tuning multiple tape hardnesses. With GTT, typically only one grade of tape is required. In conventional closed-cell anilox technology, there are literally hundreds of line/volume combinations possible to employ the proper surface for a given job – requiring large anilox inventories. But with GTT, most printers require only two or three “sizes” to replace their entire anilox inventory. This chart illustrates the range of anilox screens covered by standard GTT sizes. Your Apex Technical Sales Representative will provide you with the exact GTT “size” to match your press and print-job requirements.
