KODAK TRILLIAN SP Thermal Plates raise the stakes in plate technology

Press release from the issuing company

For offset printers, Kodak is introducing the next revolution in high-performance no-preheat printing plate technology in its new KODAK TRILLIAN SP Thermal Plates. TRILLIAN SP Plates are designed to offer commercial printers, publishers and offset package printers outstanding levels of productivity and efficiency. TRILLIAN SP Plates also lower the total cost of ownership-and provide environmental benefits-by using significantly less chemistry and eliminating the use of preheat and postbake ovens, even for long jobs in harsh chemical environments. The new plates are widely compatible with existing CTP and processing equipment, enable easier processor cleaning and less maintenance, and provide high-quality, consistent performance on press.

The TRILLIAN SP Plate is a non-ablative, negative working, thermal digital plate with wide operating latitude for long runs and offers excellent resistance to aggressive press chemistry such as UV inks and blanket washes. The plate operates in the 800-850 nm range and supports resolutions up to 300 lpi using KODAK SQUAREspot Imaging Technology. It is rated for up to 500,000 impressions unbaked.
