Product Description & Application
Thermotect is a high-quality patented baking solution for protection of non-image areas of CtP thermal and PS positive plates during baking.
Features & Benefits
Eliminates the need to re-develop or otherwise etch the plates after baking.
Prevents dot growth during baking.
The applied layer of Thermotect breaks down during the baking process for easy removal by wet-washing.
Can be applied by hand or used directly in the gumming section of a plate processor.
Usage Instructions
For hand development
Apply to the developed (and deleted) plate with a clean sponge or cotton wool pad. Spread the solution evenly over the entire plate surface. Buff down to a thin, even film. Care should be taken to avoid contamination of Thermotect from either the sponge or the bench.
For processor development
Use the full-strength solution in the finishing / gumming section of the plate processor, following the instructions of the equipment manual. For best results, the solution should be maintained at a specific gravity between 1.065 to 1.075. Under normal circumstances, this will be achieved by replenishing with Thermotect, diluted in water.
