KB Polymers describes DuPont Cyrel as a reliable plate technology business partner for over 20 years. The division has invested in three state-of-the-art 3000 series flexo platemaking machines: an Evo exposure unit, solvent processor and light finisher.

Many of our dedicated and well-trained staff complement, who started their careers with Kiley Baker 20 to 30 years ago, have continuously honed their technical skills to stay up to date with technological advances.’
