Chemistry Free Waterless Printing Plates - PearlDry

Waterless presses print cleaner, sharper images with less dot gain, and greater consistency. PearlDry plates enhance waterless printing by providing high-resolution, stability, and excellent inking characteristics in a daylight safe chemistry-free environment.

PearlDry plates enable waterless printers to fully realize the accuracy and efficiency of digital CTP by utilizing thermal laser imaging – a filmless, chemistry-free, daylight-safe process that produces sharp, extremely well defined images for superior on-press performance.  PearlDry plates can be used with Kammann imagers as well as Adast DI and KBA 74 Karat presses.

PearlDry eliminates the hazardous waste materials normally associated with lithographic plate production. Non-photographic, PearlDry plates eliminate the disposal problems and costs resulting from the heavy metals and chemicals of film-based procedures. Plus, the elimination of alcohol-based press dampening systems is a major factor in reducing pressroom emissions through waterless printing. Waterless printing with PearlDry plates is a key component in your environmental strategy. Key features include:

  • 800 to 1200 nm spectral sensitivity
  • Daylight-safe
  • No chemical processing
  • No gumming or baking
  • High resolution
