Kodak's new Libra VP litho printing plates is more sustainable and kinder to the environment and cheaper to process with run lengths up to 250,000 impressions.
Libra VP Plates are compatible with market-leading violet CTP systems and plateline equipment. If you conventionally process plates today, you can continue to use your existing equipment, simplifying processing and reducing environmental impact by replacing your traditional developer and replenisher with a single, low-pH clean-out finisher. Printers wanting to maximise efficiency and save water can use the easy chem system to remove the prewash and post-development rinse steps, using either a modified conventional processor or a dedicated clean-out unit.
Libra use a single, low-pH clean-out finisher, the Libra Clean-Out Finisher. When conventionally processed, Libra VP Plates offer a long bath life, helping reduce cleaning waste and save time. With the easy chem system, the Libra Clean-Out Finisher cleans, rinses and gums the plate, removing the water necessary for prewashing and rinsing the plate. Whether processed conventionally or with an easy chem system, Libra VP Plates can help reduce the environmental impact.
