NovaSharpTM Pearl Plus 85
Ideal for newspaper black page positives
Product Description & Application
NovaSharp Pearl Plus 85 is a polyester-based, daylight-working, zero-process, dry-to-dry film exclusively designed for making newspaper (black text) positives (or negatives) using a desktop computer and a laser printer. The UV density of the image is comparable with silver-sensitised graphic arts films and therefore perfectly suited for exposing presensitised positive and negative offset plates
Features & Benefits
Semi-transparent, double side coated matte finish film for easy stack and feed
In-line stabilised to provide superior dimensional and heat stability
High toner adhesion and density at lower levels of toner settings
Anti-static coating for sharp and smooth image
Compatible with most laser printers and copiers
