Kodak has launched its new VioletNews Gold printing plate designed for newspaper production, which the company claims to require “notably lower chemistry consumption.”
According the company, the VioletNews Gold plate, using a new developer and replenishment system, allows printing operations to reduce their total developer consumption by up to 40 percent.
The negative-working, violet-photopolymer plate is rated by Kodak for 200,000 impressions, while its handling requires darkroom conditions with G10 safelights. VioletNews Gold is available in all standard newspaper sizes, while Kodak claims it is compatible with most exposure devices and processing systems.
