WHY ASAHI?

The outstanding performance of Asahi Flexo Plates (AFP™) is the result of over 30 years of technological development in the field of photopolymer plates for flexo printing. The Photoproducts & Epoxy Resins Division at Asahi Kasei E-materials traces its roots back to 1970, with the commercialization of APR™ liquid photopolymer resin. AFP™ soon followed, and our products are now widely used all over the world. In fact, Asahi has grown to become the leading manufacturer of digital and analog printing plates for the flexo market. Asahi has achieved this by setting the highest standards possible with their product development and manufacturing. They continually strive to break new ground in advancing technologies to improve print quality, cost-effectiveness and environmental sustainability.

15 YEARS OF SUCCESSFUL PARTNERSHIP

CTGA has been the exclusive U.S. distributor of Asahi Flexo Plates for over 15 years. We recognized the quality and state-of-the-art technology in Asahi’s plate material, and established a close relationship to bring these plates to the U.S. flexo market. CTGA distributes both AFP, AWP and the newest TOP plates from Asahi covering all types of printing operations and providing a diverse array of products for our clients. We’re pleased and excited to continue our relationship with Asahi for many years to come, and continue to deliver their groundbreaking products to the U.S. market.
