Digital Rave plates are the harder, digitally imaged photopolymer plates with a high durometer that reduces dot gain in screens and minimizes banding due to press bounce. The latest generation digital plates using advanced direct-to-plate technology, and developed using MacDermid's solvent processing system, our Digital Rave plates' laser ablative mask improves dot shape and extends image latitude, while also eliminating sources for dust and light diffusion, resulting in increased plate quality and consistency.
LUX In-the-Plate (ITP) is a game changing new technology exclusively from MacDermid that provides all of the benefits of LUX flat-top dots, but with the convenience of receiving them already in the plate. No additional platemaking steps or equipment are needed to take advantage of the print quality and consistency of LUX flat-top dots. The first available plate product is LUX ITP 60. ITP 60 is a 60 durometer plate well suited for the flexible packaging; folding carton; tag & label; and sacks, paper, and multiwall segments.
