NovaSharpTM Topaz 100
Ideal for screen, halftone and line positives
Product Description & Application
NovaSharp Topaz 100 is a polyester-based, daylight-working, zero-process, dry-to-dry film for making plate-ready offset positives (or negatives) using a desktop computer and a laser printer. The UV density of the image when enhanced with density booster, 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 for good registration
High toner adhesion and UV resistant image at lower levels of toner consumption
Anti-static coating for sharp and smooth image
Compatible with most monocrome/colour laser printers for seperations & colour outputs
Using NovaDense Density Booster
Using NovaDense Density Booster Solution on the prints will enhance image density equivalent to lith film. You can get UV density close to 2.70.
