OPTIMA Thermal CTP Plates

The advanced technology of this negative working thermal plate allows for superior performance while significantly reducing chemistry usage. A daylight working plate that physically hardens the laser exposed areas. After this physical (vs. chemical) process the unexposed areas get washed away with Clean Out Solution. This very clean process provides a wide tolerance for both exposure and processing (i.e. temperature, pH, and replenishment settings). The Optima thermal plate can be processed in any existing CTP or analog plate processor and is suitable for a wide range of sheetfed and web offset printing applications. Predictable and stable for quality prints and reprints each and every time.  All of our thermal plates are 100% guaranteed for optimal performance.
