Toray Graphics’ new Imprima LJ waterless offset printing plate delivers a printing resolution up to 175 lpi. Described as being 200 percent more durable than comparable waterless offset printing plates, the Imprima LJ thermal negative CTP printing plate uses a standard imaging wavelength of 830 nanometres and is ideal for label production but can also be used for a range of other applications, including CD/DVDs, loyalty cards, metal decoration, and printing on non-absorbent substrates.

These plates are also ideal for printers using UV curable inks as well as for sheetfed and on web presses that require production quality, such as density stability during the print run, the company explains. It also boasts excellent screening at 1 to 99 percent with 36 micron FM or hybrid screening, and 2 to 98 percent with AM screening at 175 lpi.

Since this is a water-washable plate, it requires no chemicals in the developing process, and it can be processed in most available waterless processors, Toray Graphics says, noting that it also doesn’t require post-baking.

Following this launch, Toray says it will introduce a new plate type ‘in the near term’ for other printing segments: the Imprima WJ high resolution and high durability water-washable plate.
