Plate-making process

Washout by tap water at room temperature. (no additives required)

  • Remove the cover film and place a negative film on the undeveloped plate. Use a negative film having the optical density of no less than 3.0.

  • Expose the plate through the negative film to UV light having 360 nm wave length. Determine the correct exposure time using a 21 steps grey scale. Follow "TIPS FOR Printight®" in each case.

  • Remove the negative film. Washout the exposed plate with water. Use the special washout machine suitable for TOYOBO Printight®. Washout time depends on the thickness of the plate. Follow "TIPS FOR Printight®" in each case. Rinse the washed out plate with fresh water.

  • Dry the plate in a hot-air dryer after taking-off the surface water with a sponge roll. Drying time depends on the type of the plate. Follow "TIPS FOR Printight®" in each case.

  • Expose the developed plate after drying again to UV light in order to get stability. Post exposure time should be the same or longer than main exposute time.

  • Please follow all the laws and regulations in your district. (Please refer to SDS for details.)
What is the recommended plate-making condition?
It is recommended to handle unprocessed raw plates under yellow safe lights or UV cut lamps.
What is the recommended storage conditions?
To ensure a longer shelf life, store the unexposed plate in a dark room at a temperature below 25ºC(77Fº) and humidity below 70%.
How to set the appropriate plate-making condition?
Please refer to "TIPS for Printight" contained in the carton of the product.
  • All products are produced with a quality control system as certificated by "ISO 9001" for the world.
