Adam Smrdel from Carey Color

Adam Smrdel, who has worked at Carey Color Inc. since he turned 16, spoke at the FTA Forum
2016. He recalled some of the evolutions he has seen as a way to frame his urge to find what’s
next. A prolific author for FLEXO Magazine, Smrdel highlighted the material covered in his five
past articles, which touched on topics like elastomer vs. photopolymer, gray component
replacement (GCR) and under color removal (UCR), press profiling, elastomer advantages
and holding a KISS impression, and thermal contraction and expansion.

“I have seen a very steady growth of engraved elastomer material—both through finding solutions
not possible with other materials and by word of mouth between printers sharing their positive
experiences,” Smrdel declared.
