Lower chemistry consumption
Superia LH-PXE, when used with Fujifilm FLH-Z or FLC-TZ processors, can benefit from much lower chemistry consumption. Typically, a full bath of developer can develop up to 10,000 m2 of plates resulting in substantial savings in developer consumption.
Maintaining perfect developer activity allows the developer bath life to be greatly extended beyond the norm for developing systems. It is typical to achieve bath life figures that are four or more times greater than normal plate processing systems.
Cleaner working environment
The chemistry used for processing Superia LH-PXE plates in a ‘ZAC’ system is a nonsilicate based recipe. This makes a much longer bath life possible without the increase in developer sludge and filter blockages. Also, as the chemistry contains no alcohol or solvents, this further enhances the working environment.
More stable plate production
Because of the way ‘ZAC’ processors intelligently control replenisher delivery, they are more stable making it much easier to achieve high quality, irrespective of changes to environmental conditions. This is particularly important for demanding FM screening applications.
Highly durable and suitable for ultra-long run lengths
Superia LH-PXE features much better durability and enhanced handling properties thanks to a new double layer emulsion. The plate is therefore particularly suitable for ultra-long run commercial print applications of up to 500,000 unbaked and 1,000,000 baked.
High sensitivity plate for ultra-fast plate production
Superia LH-PXE features a highly sensitive emulsion which requires minimal laser power and results in faster plate production (platesetter dependent).
