NovaSharpTM Crystal 100
Ideal for newspaper black page positives
Product Description & Application
NovaSharp Crystal 100 is a polyester-based, daylight-working, zero-process, dry-to-dry film for making newspaper black page 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 100 micron (4Mil) film base with background UV density of 0.07 - 0.08, ideally suitable for making cost effective newspaper black page positives
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.
