NovaSharpTM Crystal 125
Ideal for silk-screen & Offset positive colour separation
Product Description & Application
NovaSharp Crystal 125 is a polyester-based, daylight-working, zero-process, dry-to-dry film for making silk-screen & offset positives using a desktop computer and a laser printer. Using the image density booster solution enhances the UV density of the image which is comparable with silver-sensitised graphic arts films and therefore perfectly suited for exposing silk-screens & presensitised offset plates.
Features & Benefits
Clear 125 micron (5 mil) film base with background UV density of 0.07 - 0.08, ideally suitable for optimum exposure in silk-screen & process colour separation printing
Film aesthetics similar to lith film
In-line stabilised to provide superior dimensional and heat stability for good registration
High toner adhesion and UV resistant image at lower levels of toner consumption
Not recommended for stack feeding
Compatible with most laser printers
NovaDense Density Booster Solution
Using NovaDense Density Booster Solution on the prints will enhance image density equivalent to lith film. You can get UV density > 2.5.

Workflow
Media Handling and Storage
NovaSharp Crystal can be imaged on either side of the film
Hold the media by the edges. Be careful not to scuff or scratch the printing side
Store the media in a cool dry place and away from direct sunlight
Store the media flat, to avoid curling, warping or damage to the edges
Ensure the unused media is always kept safely in the original packing
Maintain print environment at 20-25o C at 50-65% RH for optimum print quality.
