Presstek's chemistry-free Anthem Pro thermal CTP plates deliver the reliability and performance of traditional grained anodized aluminum plates without the problems and expense of chemical plate processing. Daylight-safe Anthem Pro plates require only a simple rinse with water and they are ready for printing.
True chemistry-free platemaking from Presstek eliminates chemical developing, baking and gumming steps and their associated costs. Fewer steps mean more efficient operation, greater consistency and lower costs.
On press Anthem Pro prints cleaner, sharper images, with less dot gain and greater consistency than conventional offset plates. Presstek's exclusive Pro graining provides exceptional ink/water latitude, resulting in faster roll-up and stable color throughout the press run. Anthem Pro plates make printing easier, cleaner and safer by transforming platemaking from a variable, expensive, messy, and chemistry intensive task into a simple, clean, and easy process.
