Third Generation UV CtP Plate for Laser Imaging
Product Description & Application
Ajax is a third generation UV CtP plate especially designed for hi-resolution, hi-speed imaging on the latest UV CtP plate setters using Ultra-Violet laser diode technology. It is significantly superior to the second generation UV CtP plate. Ajax ensures reproduction of 1%-99% dots at 200 lpi and FM screening.
(Caution: Not recommended for use as Analog PS Plate)
Features & Benefits
Significantly faster plate compared to second generation UV CtP plate yielding high throughput
Excellent Image contrast
Better exposure and processor latitude
Very good resistance to alcohol and press chemicals offering robust press performance
Dependable run-length of upto 50,000 impressions
Compatible to baking process with RC510 to increase run-length
Each plate carries a printed identification number for quality assurance
