Negative DOP Environmentally Friendly Processless Thermal CTP Plate
EcooGraphix Ecoo-G is a new, environmentally friendly, Development On Press CTP plate. It can be run directly on a printing press after imaging, without a need for chemical processing.
ECOO-G is double layer, and the emulsion layer will not dissolve into water, so it will not integrate into fountain solution; while the protection layer is well water-soluble, and it will be easy dissolved into the fountain solution.

ECOO-G has a wide range of exposure energy, the range is 140-200mj/cm2 (similar range to Sonora XP plate), and the dot gain percentage is not much different within this range.
*Note: Higher exposure energy will make the image contrast more clear, and benefit to the plate run length; while over high/low exposure energy will affect the image quality negatively.
Recommended application to press procedures of ECOO-G:
Clean all the inks on the blanket;
Start the press machine, apply the water roller, run 30-40 seconds;
Apply the ink rollers 20-30 seconds;
Apply the paper and start print.
Remark: If operate step 2 and 3 longer, paper will be wasted less.
Plate Producing and Packaging
