N94-V is a photopolymer offset plate for the newspaper industry. Thanks to its UV-ink printing capabilities, N94-V opens up new possibilities for semi-commercial printing applications.
N94-V has arrived and the newspaper industry will never be the same. These photopolymer offset plates address the exact demands of today’s newspaper printers. N94-V is sensitized for visible lasers emitting at 405 nm, which brings enhanced imaging and processing latitude.
While newspapers often are printed at night, printing engines don’t sleep during daytime. Semi-commercial printing is necessary in the newspaper industry, for a bigger return on investment. N94-V is fit for the job, thanks to its UV-ink printing capabilities.
- Compatible with high-speed violet newspaper engines
- Improved image quality and working latitude (pre-heat and on-press)
- Run length of over 300,000
- Most robust photopolymer plate on the market
- Suitable for use with metallic and UV inks
Low cost of ownership, extremely long lifespan and absolute reliability. These are a few of the ways in which violet-diode plate setters excel. N94-V is yet more proof of the lasting success of violet CtP. With its optimized photo-layer and improved substrate characteristics, N94-V sets new standards of photopolymer plate technology for violet laser imaging.
Fast exposure and Proven Plate Processing
Simple processing and robustness, combined with fast, accurate and wide-latitude plate exposure: N94-V does it all. This plate is processed in the standard way: pre-heat (image amplification) is followed by overcoat wash-off. Subsequently, the image is developed and the plate is washed and gummed.
Durable Substrate Giving High On-press Performance
Advanced electrochemical graining and anodizing yield the reliability and robustness needed on a newspaper press and the durability required to cope with even the longest press runs. The plate is UV ink compatible, which makes it the perfect choice for applications which are semi-newspaper and semi-commercial. In short, N94-V provides a solid foundation for consistent press performance.
