imagepac Xtra Red 2.3mm sachets
£10.49 – £33.74 excl vat
imagepac Xtra red photopolymer sachets in 2.3mm thickness. Just lay on negative, flatten and expose.
Ideal for making office stamps on larger exposure units. One side of the plastic remains on, one side is removable. Provides a strong rigid backing for the stamp sheet to use on a self-inker.
imagepac xtra is pre-packaged 50 durometer photopolymer in a sachet. One side of the sachet is rigid and will adhere to the finished plate, providing rigidity and the other is flexible, delivering excellent imaging. Only the flexible side is removeable. This delivers exactly the same finished product as you would have to manually construct in flexographic printing.
