Features & Benefits
Strong desensitising agent. Alkaline solution.
Thoroughly desensitises and eliminates plate scratches in the non-image from getting reproduced in print for prolonged duration.

Prevents cancellation of plates that are otherwise irreparable.
Usage Instructions
Treatment of plate scratches
Clean/remove ink from the scratch/abrasion affected areas using PlateCleaner GP. Wash the area with water to completely remove the residue and buff down. Dry the affected areas thoroughly using a hair dryer. Apply PlateSaver using clean cotton or brush and work over the area. Buff lightly and dry completely with warm air from the drier. Apply a desensitising gum without wet washing the plate and restart printing.
Treatment of deleted areas
Wet wash the plate thoroughly to remove residue completely. Buff dry the plate and apply Plate Saver on the deleted areas using cotton wool. Buff down with a dry lint-free cloth. Apply a desensitising gum and start printing.
