Letterpress Plates & Relief Plates
Toray Relief Printing Plates
Partners Graphic offers a complete line of letterpress plates. The Torelief photosensitive resin relief printing plate was developed thanks to technological skills amassed by Toray in the polymer chemistry and resin fields.
The unique water-softened and brush-washed polymer offers extremely wide plate-making latitude for optimum reproduction. Torelief plates are available in a variety of thicknesses and hardnesses and with both film and metal backs. Analogue plates are imaged using traditional film, and CTP plates are available with a black mast or as a laser ablation plate.
Features of Torelieff Plates:
- Incomparable Image Reproduction - Assures Consistent High Quality
- Good Contact with Negative Film
- Easy and Fast Plate Making - Quick Exposure and Quick Washout Properties
- Environmentally Friendly - No Chemicals Used in Processing
- Superior Ink Receptivity - Soft and Flexible Plates Provide Excellent Ink Receptivity
CTP Digital Torelief Plates
Toray offers letterpress customers a full line of digital plates. Incorporating a black mask layer onto the letterpress plate, the digital data can now be imaged directly by a CDI Imager, removing the requirement of film and chemistry and allowing a fully digital workflow. When the imaging is completed, the plates are then processed in the traditional way.
The next generation of Torelief photopolymer plate technology has been incorporated into the Toray family of digital letterpress plates. The perfect combination of "CTP Technology" and "Toray Highpolymer Technology" enables Torelief CTP to achieve the highest quality.
