Plate Specs and Storage information
Plate run lengths.
This is very dependant on the press settings ( eg roller
and blanket pressures ) as well as the type of inks and stocks
that are used.
Inks that are high in pigments can damage a plate more, and
paper that is high in acid content or high in paper dust can
also reduce the run length.
UV inks are harsher on plates than oil inks, but the Fuji
LP-NV violet CTP plates have performed extremely well in the
After printing, clean the plate thoroughly with a mild plate
Buff the plate dry and apply a ph neutral gum ( eg Fuji GU-7
) to the plate. Spread it evenly and buff the plate dry. Place
a sheet of ph neutral paper on the surface of the plate. The
original plate interleaf paper is ideal. Keep the plate flat
and store the plate in a cool, dry place. Keep the plates
away from strong, direct lights and high humidity.
Tips for plate usage
- Store plates out of strong, direct lights.
- Store with a ph neutral gum.
- Store and handle plates in a low humidity environment.
- Use mild plate cleaners. Harsh plate cleaners easily remove
dry ink.\, but can damage a plate.
- Clean the ink and other press chemicals off the plate
as soon as possible after printing.
- Don’t bend the plates unnecessarily
