Buy Article:


The development of the Computer-to-Plate technology is necessary for the full digitization in the lithographic printing process. The new direct-plate making by laser heating is investigated. The multi-layered laser plate is composed of the silicone top layer, the laser light absorbing layer and the porous layer containing Zinc-Oxide powder and binder polymer. The both of silicone and laser light absorbing layers exposed to the laser light are melted and penetrated in to the porous layer. The image and background areas exhibit ink acceptance and repulsive, respectively. This plate is used for the lithographic printing plate.
