Thermal CTP Plate


Thermal CTP Plate is a high-quality printing plate specialized for thermal CTP platesetter, It is directly scanned by 830 nm laser controlled by computer then put on press for printing after developing.

Unique formulation design

The sensitive layer of hermal CTP Plate is a unique for formulation structure and it makes the dot edge which is formed with laser scanning more sharp.

High-quality substrate

TP-P thermal CTP Plate takes use of the fine aluminum plate with complex grain construction and dense oxidized layer as its substrate which was processed with a special method. It is not only ensures the adhesion of thermal coating to the aluminum plate, but also makes the plate possessing excellent run length and exact dot reproduction to guarantee high quality printing.

Convenient bright room operation

The printing plate is imaged and processed under day-light condition without additional dark room, which can be easier and more comfortable operators.

Outstanding platesetter compatibility

TP-P thermal CTP plate can be compatible with various thermal CTP plate setter available in current markets.
