NegadevTM 022
Product Description & Application
Negadev 022 is an aqueous developer for manual and machine development of Argos presensitised negative plates.
Features & Benefits
Ready-to-use solution.
Fast working, low odour, low hazard rating developer.
High efficiency (Consumption rate typically 18 to 20 m2 of plate per liter).
Achieves excellent dot reproduction and good image contrast after development.
Works satisfactorily over a wide temperature range of 15 - 25°C.
Works satisfactorily in most negative plate processors with a water wash system.
Usage Instructions
As a hand developer
Apply sufficient developer to the plate surface and spread evenly, using light pressure. Allow sufficient time for the coating to completely dissolve, approximately 30 seconds, and then remove the residual developer. Use a second application of developer and continue development until background areas are clear. Rinse thoroughly with water.
As a processor developer
Fill the automatic processor to the recommended level and process the plates in accordance with the processor manual. Replenish regularly with Negadev 022 to maintain the level in the developer tank and to prevent the developer from becoming too viscous. It is recommended that the developer is changed once a month or after a throughput of 25m2 per litre. Use in the temperature range of 15 - 25° C.
Storage, Handling & Packaging
Storage & Handling
Store at moderate room temperatures in a dry, well-ventilated area. Protect from heat and direct sunlight. Keep the containers closed. The use of gloves and goggles is strongly recommended while handling Negadev 022.
12 months from the date of manufacture.
5 litres.
Avoid contact with eyes. A wider temperature range can be tolerated but higher temperatures may remove colour from the image and lower temperatures may require longer development.
