Kodak, a leader in digital plates and CTP solutions, has announced that a new formulation of its TRILLIAN SP Thermal Plate will now be available in Latin America. Print service providers in other regions of the world have been utilizing the updated TRILLIAN SP Plates to enjoy elite levels of productivity, efficiency and total-cost effectiveness, as well as a substantial reduction in chemistry compared to previous plate systems from Kodak.
While TRILLIAN SP Plates reduce total cost of ownership, they also enable environmental benefits by using significantly less chemistry. In addition, printers can eliminate preheat ovens and potentially postbake ovens, even for lengthy jobs in harsh chemical environments.
Over the last several years, Kodak has improved the stability and performance of TRILLIAN SP Plates, and with the success seen in other regions, is now expanding the optimized formulation and improved chemistry system to the Latin America Region
TRILLIAN SP Plates are widely compatible with existing CTP and processing equipment such as the KODAK TRENDSETTER, MAGNUS and ACHIEVE Platesetters, as well as enabling long, stable and clean chemical cycles with easy processor cleaning. TRILLIAN SP Plates are ideal for a variety of applications, including small and large commercial sheetfed and commercial publication applications, certain heatset web, offset packaging and UV print applications.
Additionally, the plates provide wide latitude for increased stability of short and long-run AM and FM applications, with up to 500,000 impressions unbaked and 125,000 impressions for UV applications.
TRILLIAN SP Plates also contribute sustainability benefits as they use up to 70 percent less chemistry than previous plate systems to significantly reduce chemistry, storage and disposal costs. TRILLIAN SP Plates use a low replenishment plate solution that delivers longer processing cycles while reducing chemistry consumption. In turn, generating less waste while also improving uptime and reducing cost.
