Thermal CTP Plates Instruction
Phoeneagle Thermal CTP plate(PGE)is designed to meet the needs of sheet-fed and we printing-consistency, cost-effective, easy to use and quality. This positive acting plate for 830nm CTP systems provides excellent imaging qualities and reliable printing behaviors.
Consistency Computerized equipments on production lines monitor over 50 production parameters to ensure batch-to-batch consistency;
Cost-effective Fast exposure speed without pre-heating. Long run-length;
Easy-to-use Process under convenient daylight; Wide latitude and excellent reliability;
Quality High resolution, rich tone, and quick ink-water balance.
Run length is always dependent on exposure, processing and press conditions.
Application Commercial Printing
Type Infrared sensitive, positive acting
Substrate Electro-chemical grained, anodized and sealing treated Aluminium
Able to work under white light;
No need to pre-heat.
Special ingredients, together with the optimally distributed formula weight of binding polymers, in the coating of KTP offer fine dots with sharp edges and reproduce images with rich tone.
Post Anodizing Treatment(PAT Pic3) provides excellent
Water retaining capability at the non-image area and prevents scumming.
Multi-Grains structure(Pic1 to Pic3) improves water
Retaining capability and keeps ink-water balance optimally.
1. Marco-molecules are formed by cross-linked micro-molecules during the oven drying procedure of plate production.
Thermal sensitive coating with IR-Absorber;
Hydrophilic layer formed by sealing treatment;
Electrochemically grained and anodized Aluminium.
2. Infrared Laser exposures the non-image area. The IR-Absorber in the thermal sensitive coating converts light to heat and breaks the cross-linked structure.
3. The deformation of marco-molecules at the non-image area makes the coating alkaline soluble(Developer)
4. Image area remains insoluble to the developer.
Store under Dry (relative humidity no more than 65%) and Cool(10-30℃) conditions. Keep away from chemicals.
Shelf life: 18 months
Apply on thermal CTP plate setters with following specifications:
Exposure Energy: approx: 160mj /square centimeters
Spectral Sensitivity: 800-850nm, peak sensitivity at 830nm
Resolution: up to 1-99% 200lpi/20u FM
Applicable platesetter: KODAK/SCREEN/CRON
Developer: Kodak Goldstar Premium plate developer 100%
Develop temperature: 23-24℃
Develop time: 40 seconds.
Deletion: KM-7(Gel), KM-1 & KM-2 (Pen)
To remove the unwanted image on non-image area, you can use Image remover gel KM-7 or Deletion Pen KM-1,KM-2. Apply the image
Remover on the dry plate for about 10 seconds and wipe off the residue. The residue on the plate will decrease the run-length. Using Phoeneagle Deletion Pen will minimize the side effects to the plates.
Finishing: KG-2, KG-2S
To increase the hydrophilicity of the non-image area and prevent the plate from fingerprint and other contamination, you should use gum solution
(KG-2 or KG-2S, 8%-11% made by Gum Arabic) immediately after image removing. Wipe the gum solution on the developed plate and dry it.
Gum solutions made by synthetic polymer are difficult to wash away before printing and result in poor roll-up performance.
Remove unwanted image from plate with Deletion Pen, wipe the plate with bake solution(KB-3) and heat at 220℃ for minutes. Before printing, treat the baked plate with developer for 30 seconds, wash with water thoroughly and then gumming.

Thermal ctp plate takes use of the high quality aluminum plate with complex grain construction and dense oxidized layer as its substrate which was processed with a special method,making it has the flollowing advantages:
1,Environmental protection formula design
Thermal ctp plate the sensitive layer is a unique formulation structure and it makes the dot edge which is formed whith is formed with laser scanning more sharp and suitable for high-end commercial color printing.Comparing with the traditional plates,reduce the harm to environment and operators.
2,Accurate Dot Reduction
Thermal ctp plate with a unique treatment on the aluminum plate,makes it has a evenly and fine grain structure,not only improve the impression runs of the plate,also makes the dot reduction more accurate,guarantee for the high quality printing,greatly reduces the cost.
3,Easy Operation,Excellent Plate Setter Compatibility
Thermal ctp plates are easy to operate.its unique design,can lay down in the process of traditional plate-making film production,shorten the process time,improve the working efficiendy.It can be compatible with various thermal CTP plate setters available in the current market.
