DuPont Packaging Graphics is taking a new approach and reaching a broader audience to raise awareness about its new DuPont Cyrel Performance Plates for flexible package printing.

DuPont Cyrel Performance Plates can be used to achieve exceptional print quality for CPGs in a range of applications including flexible packaging, tags and labels, and carrier bags. They can reduce the environmental impact of printing and enable improvements in productivity as well, from improving press up-time to reducing start-up waste.
