What are the light and humidity requirements?
ECO-PRO DOP has sensitivity to UV light, high temperatures & high humidity. The plates can be handled in yellow safelight (e.g. Filter G10) for up to 12 hours and white light for up to 2 hours @ 400 lux or 1 hour at 800 lux. Plates & open packs should be kept under 77 degrees F & humidity below 60%.
What is the Energy Requirement?
120mj/cm2 is recommended. The range is 110mj/cm2 to 145mj/cm2.
Does the plate ablate?
The plate does not ablate on any device at least in-part because of its protective overcoat.
How does the plate dampen?
The dampening rollers are engaged for several revolutions (normal damp settings should be used). This softens & swells the non-image areas of the plate. If the press does not allow pre-dampening
the ink rollers can be engaged immediately although this will increase the amount of make ready sheets. ECO-PRO DOP may need less water than some competitor plates.
How does the plate develop?
The ink rollers are engaged, & the paper feed started, when the paper reaches the blanket, the fount & ink have removes the unexposed coating from the plate & onto the blanket. The paper used for make-ready sheets carries away the coating. The density of the image builds quickly in the same way as conventionally processed plates. The make-ready for Eco-PRO DOP and processed plates is similar.
