Unmatched Quality, Productivity and 100% Solvent Free
Flenex FW Water Washable Flexo Plates represent Fujifilm’s latest industry-changing technology expressly developed for flexo printers. Flenex provides the highest print quality at the fastest production times, while significantly lowering cost-in-use compared to thermal, solvent or other water-wash technology.

Less Processing. More Productivity
State-of-the-art Flenex FW plates reduce platemaking processing times to less than 40 minutes, 300% faster than leading solvent systems and 1.5 times faster than current thermal and water technologies. That translates to more time on press and a dramatic decrease in your time to press.
Washout of Flenex FW plates is accomplished with only a mild detergent and typically allows for the residual solution to be treated as common wastewater after removing a small amount of residual particulate. When compared to the known impact solvents and wicking cloths have on the environment during their life cycle and disposal, it’s clear to see how Flenex FW provides a greener solution.
IT’S NOT A MYTH. Flenex FW offers the highest quality and fastest speed.
Higher Quality. Longer Runs.
Innovative water wash chemistry delivers longer runs while producing a consistent 200 lpi at 4,000 dpi, 1% flat top dot structure for print quality never before seen with flexo plates. The exclusive chemistry of Flenex FW enables each plate to perform longer on press while improvements in plate durability increases overall press uptime for longer print runs and shop profitability.
“Combined with the Fujifilm CTP processor, we have virtually eliminated plate waste during processing and cut press downtime in half when a new plate is made.”
Joseph Helms, Production Manager, The Print Source, Inc.
“The quality of the flat-top dot we are getting is much more consistent and we can now print a .5% dot compared to only being able to print 1% before.”
Tim Oos, Pre-Press/Digital Press Operator, Action Quality Printers
“My production team was very skeptical going back to a water wash plate from a thermal plate, but after making some minor handling adjustments, they were quite pleased with the improved print quality, and the cost savings is a big bonus.”
