WILMINGTON, Del.—DuPont marks the 40th anniversary of DuPont Cyrel flexographic printing systems this year by commemorating its past, celebrating its present and looking ahead to a future of continued innovation.
In 1974, DuPont introduced the first elastomeric photopolymer printing plates under the Cyrel brand to the printed packaging industry.
Forty years later, DuPont has played a leading role in shaping the industry, consistently advancing flexography through its Cyrel systems and working to provide printers with the best balance of quality, productivity and sustainability to help them succeed.
“Over the last 40 years, forward-thinking printing companies have used Cyrel systems because they represent the best balance of quality, productivity and sustainability,” said John Chrosniak, global business director, DuPont Packaging Graphics.
“The flexographic printing market adopted Cyrel as the industry standard and DuPont continues to deliver innovative new products such as Cyrel Performance Plates, and invest in continued R&D to meet the needs of this growing market. We are honored to be celebrating the 40th anniversary of Cyrel this year with our customers. Together we achieved this milestone through our shared commitment to advancing flexography.”
Operating in six continents and 100 countries, DuPont continues to innovate and expand the Cyrel product line.
“Our goal is to help our Cyrel customers achieve graphics and colors consumers can’t resist. We look forward to the promise the next 40 years holds,” said Chrosniak.
DuPont will mark the 40th anniversary of Cyrel with a year-long global celebration highlighting historical milestones, as well as past, present and future leaders in innovation with Cyrel flexographic printing systems.
