Violet Chem-Free Plates

:N94-VCF is Agfa Graphics’ latest addition to the range of photopolymer offset plates for the newspaper industry. Like other violet offset plates, it is sensitised for visible lasers emitting at 405 nm, but instead of requiring a chemical developer for processing, it is designed for chemistry-free operation, requiring only 2 types of gum to develop and become useable on the press. The :N94-VCF has a run length of up to 200 000 impressions dependent on press conditions and are not suitable for use with UV inks.
