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.
