Toyobo

For decades, Toyobo has been on the forefront of the flexo plate making industry. The company began in the market pioneering with the water-washable letterpress plate ‘Printight’, which was successfully commercialized. Next, they released the world’s first water-washable flexo plate ‘Cosmolight’, which eliminated the use of toxics in the plate-wash process.

Toyobo’s resources and experience in chemistry has certainly provided a continuous and successful development of high performance products for the flexo printing industry.

The Cosmolight

The Cosmolight

Toyobo’s superior photopolymer technology produces a water-wash plate, which is also durable to water-based ink, as well as solvent based and UV-ink. This revolutionary plate eliminates the use of toxic and environmentally damaging washout solvents, allowing the process to be completed by using water, one of our most abundant resources.

The AllFlexo, a sister company of AV Flexologic, is the agent for Cosmolight and Printight in UK, Germany, Belgium, Holland and Romania. AV Flexologic and Toyobo are working closely together to eliminate pre-press related press-downtime and to achieve higher quality flexo prints with a low cost.
