The QUARTZ positive plate is a double-layer with a high chemical resistance coating for heavy-duty applications such as printing with UV or hybrid inks or for very long runs (both sheetfed and rotoweb). In both situations, performance is guaranteed without the need for baking. The QUARTZ plate coating has a high sensitivity (40 mJ/cm2) and can reproduce AM screens of over 200 lpi and the stochastic FM dot of 20 microns. QUARTZ is suitable for a wide range of high-quality printing applications. It allows run lengths of 150,000 with UV inks and at least 400,000 with standard inks, without baking. The QUARTZ plate is certified by all major UV laser plate manufacturers.
