Superia PRO-V

A violet low chemistry CTP plate designed for medium to long-run commercial print applications that can be used with UV inks unbaked, and is suitable for high quality 20μm FM screening applications.

Superia PRO-V at a glance:

  • When used with our low chemistry finishing units, no chemical replenisher is required meaning chemistry consumption is considerably reduced
  • Lower water use and minimal waste
  • Rated at 1-99% resolution (when used with a Luxel ‘HD’ capable platesetter), Superia PRO-V brings unmatched quality, consistency and productivity
  • The elimination of chemical replenishment and the unique formulation of the developer result in a much cleaner bath which equates to a simpler maintenance regime and easier cleaning

Lower chemistry consumption

When Brillia HD PRO-V is used with our ‘lo-chem’ finishing units, no chemical replenisher is required meaning chemistry consumption is considerably reduced. For a printer using around 10,000 B1 plates over a 1-3 month period, chemistry consumption can be reduced to around 400 litres, a reduction of over 70% (depending upon existing system used).

Lower water use and minimal waste

As Brillia HD PRO-V does not require a post exposure rinse, mains water is eliminated and water consumption is considerably reduced. A simple water top up to the developer chemistry is all that is required to keep the system ticking over effectively. As a result, waste production is also considerably reduced.

Higher consistent quality

Brillia HD PRO-V combines the benefits of low-chemistry CTP with the proven low cost of ownership of violet imaging. The plate itself is rated at 1-99% resolution (when used with a Luxel ‘HD’ capable platesetter) and it brings unmatched quality, consistency and productivity to violet plate production, with extended run lengths and the ability to easily print FM screens.

Easier maintenance

The elimination of chemical replenishment and the unique formulation of the developer result in a much cleaner bath which equates to a simpler maintenance regime and easier cleaning.

High speed plate production

Brillia HD PRO-V incorporates a new high-sensitivity polymerisation technology that enables users to achieve the same level of productivity as conventional processed violet CTP plates without the need for laser upgrades.
