Die cutting

Apply this resilient elastomer to obtain firmer, more secure positioning of your packaging and paper material, ensuring greater accuracy during the cutting process. Count on the high-speed recoil of Cellasto® to consistently eject die-cut material and its extremely high durability to keep your equipment running smoother for longer.  Because it’s readily available, you can achieve high performance both rapidly and economically.


Flexo printing

Incorporate Cellasto® in the design of your flexo plate cylinders to improve the quality and output of your printing process. The material’s high compressibility and quick rebound will improve the ease of roller mounting on base layers. In sleeves, the elastomer’s resilience will rapidly restore roll form, providing consistent and even pressure at high speeds. Not only that, but its superior durability will extend equipment run time.
