Superia LH-PXE

A positive working, thermal low chemistry CTP plate for ultra-long run commercial print applications, with enhanced handling properties, much better durability and suitable for high quality 20μm FM screening applications.

Superia LH-PXE at a glance:

  • Suitable for ultra-long run commercial print applications of up to 500,000 unbaked and 1,000,000 baked
  • Enhanced handling properties achieved thanks to a new double layer emulsion which resulting in much better durability
  • Highly sensitive emulsion requires minimal laser power and results in faster plate production (platesetter dependent)
  • Take advantage of all the benefits of our Superia low chemistry plate production systems, when used with a Fujifilm 'ZAC' capable processor, which include lower chemistry usage, lower processor maintenance, lower waste production, a cleaner working environment and better stability

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 8,000 m2 of plates resulting in substantial savings in developer consumption.

Lower maintenance

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).
