NovaToneTM P
Product Description & Application
NovaTone P is a concentrate aqueous developer and top-up for hand or machine processing of presensitised positive-working plates.
Features & Benefits
Aqueous alkaline solution in concentrate form
Dissolves and removes exposed coating of presensitised positive plates.
Compatible for manual and processor development.
Works well with most aqueous presensitised positive plates.
Works satisfactorily over a wide temperature latitude of 17-25°C.
Usage Instructions
Dilute 1 litre of the developer with 3 litres of water to make ready-to-use solution.
Drastic changes in raw-water temperature may necessitate a change in dilution.
Place the exposed plate on a clean, dry bench or tray.
Pour sufficient quantity of the mixed solution and spread evenly on the exposed plate using a clean sponge/developing pad.
Apply the developer with even strokes across the plate until the colour changes.
Squeeze off the exhausted developer and repeat application until the plate is fully developed.
Developing time for correctly exposed plate should not exceed 2 minutes.
Rinse both sides of the plate thoroughly with running water to remove residue.
Squeeze off excess water and gum-up.
For tray and machine developing, dilution may have to be adjusted suitably.
Equipment manufacturers’ instructions should be followed closely when NovaTone P is used in automatic plate processors.
