Asahi Photoproducts Targets Solvent ZERO at Labelexpo Europe 2023 

FIAUK Ruby partner, Asahi Photoproducts, a pioneer in flexographic photopolymer plate development, today reported that it will be exhibiting at Labelexpo Europe, scheduled for 11 to 14 September in Brussels. 

Asahi Photoproducts, a subsidiary of Asahi Kasei, will be located in Stand 5a34 at the show, where visitors will be able to learn how switching from solvent-wash to water-wash plates can not only make their operations more sustainable, but also reduce waste, improve print quality, and speed to market. 

The majority of platemakers today still use solvent wash platemaking technologies, which often can generate unwanted odour in the ambient working environment. In this day and age, many people believe that the manufacturer should be environmentally sustainable and create balanced solutions for a better working environment. 

The packaging printing industry should be taking proactive steps in this direction. This means creating a better future for platemaking sites and taking care of the people who work in those facilities. Asahi Kasei has always been concerned about “life” and “living” and is now introducing what that means, step by step, for platemaking sites. 

Asahi Kasei has developed a specific roadmap towards a Solvent ZERO solution that will help platemaking operations not only be more sustainable, but create a safer, more enjoyable work environment for their most valuable asset – their employees – as they migrate to a Solvent ZERO operation. At Labelexpo Europe, the company will be unveiling this roadmap and helping visitors understand their best pathway to a Solvent ZERO future.
