C&T Channel Matrix has launched ‘Duroprint Matrix’, a new concept in fibre based creasing matrix. Following a request from Mito SRL, (C&T’s Italian subsidiary), for a fibre based matrix to sell into the Italian market, C&T developed this new product which it is now launching in the UK.
Unlike traditional pressboard products, Duroprint Matrix is manufactured using a vulcanised fibre based material which makes the matrix more durable and less likely to wear or delaminate. This gives the customer huge benefits in terms of matrix durability and stability and makes Duroprint ideal for medium to long run applications. Also, because it is fibre based, it is very easy to chamfer by hand.
Duroprint has already been an enormous success in Italy and C&T is now delighted to offer the product to the UK market.
Duroprint Matrix is available in widths of 9.4 mm and 12.4 mm, with heights ranging from 0.3 mm up to 1.6 mm. In addition, Duroprint comes in special finishes which include mini, off centre and double crease.
Simon Shenton, managing director at C&T Matrix, said: ‘We are delighted to be able to offer Duroprint Matrix, as a uniquely durable fibre based matrix, to the UK. This latest innovation demonstrates how C&T is leading the way in terms of new products for die cutters, plate makers and the print and packaging industries. It follows on from the hugely successful 2018 UK launch of Rapido Matrix which is made up of a single piece PVC strip, out of which the channel is then routed. C&T is proud to take on a global role for packaging producers, ensuring that matrix is constantly developed.’
