Whatever your printing needs, Heidelberg® has the ideal
printing plate in itsSaphira® range. The Saphira Thermal Plate
Chemfree 101 - a negative offset aluminum plate - represents the
latest generation of eco-friendly printing plates with outstanding
prepress and press properties.
High sensitivity for more plates per hour. Due to an enhanced coating, the plate has been made much more sensitive. This also boosts throughput on the Suprasetter™ and other CtP platesetters.
Higher contrast for easier control. A further benefit of the new coating is its greater contrast. The print image can be seen immediately after imaging and rinsing in the cleaning station. The excellent contrast makes measured and visual checks of the imaged plate simplicity itself.
Simple process with maximum stability. Process stability is maximized thanks to the simple chemistry free rinsing process carried out in the cleaning station by use of the appropriate Saphira Clean-out Gum.
