Called UV – PH CTCP plate, it is a faster plate – faster by 20% than regular PS plates in the market and can record 1% to 99% dots. It has higher sensitivity, which means the pre press bureau will have more “TurnAround.”
Apart from high sensitivity, these plates also offer higher run length upto 100 – 125K Impression with Normal inks (unbaked). It can also be used for UV inks (short run) upto 5000 Impressions.
While, baked plates can run above 200,000 impressions with normal inks and 50,000 with UV inks.
UV –PH is not only blue in colour, similar to thermal plates, but the plate itself is comparable to thermal plates. If good developer is used, it will have less sludge and makes processor cleaning with less effort.
