Product Description & Application
PlateCleaner GP is a premium, general-purpose, emulsion plate cleaner and conditioner suitable for CtP and analog plates.
Features & Benefits
Rapidly removes scum / ink from the plates. Cleans both, image and non-image areas.
Good ink solvency for fast ink removal and cleaning of even dried ink.
Stable emulsion enables minimum wastage when used directly from a squeeze bottle.
Sufficiently thick and viscous to be used on localised application without spreading or running down the plate cylinder.
Does not attack image areas during the cleaning process when properly buffed down.
Desensitises the cleaned non-image area and prevents further scum.
Easily removed with water.
Shake the bottle well and apply to plate surface with a damp sponge.
Wash off the residue with a damp sponge and continue printing.
PlateCleaner GP can be used for washing away ink from the plates prior to storage procedure and during the routine plate cleaning operation.
It is compatible for use with non-sensitised plates as well. Shake the bottle well before use, and then apply the solution with a sponge in the affected areas.
For best results, use on damp plate.
