Agfa Thermostar

Thermostar plates are designed for fast, high-resolution, imaging without pre-heating or special handling. The secret of the Thermostar P970? Its combination of a hydrophobic polymer coating and an infrared sensitive upper layer. The coating provides impressive lithographic performance and press durability, while the upper layer guarantees fast imaging. The result is a positive-working plate, perfect for commercial printing applications of medium run lengths. The Thermostar P970 creates high-resolution plates with a screen ruling of 1 to 99% at 200 lpi. This makes it the perfect ally for a wide range of applications, including stochastic and hybrid screening. Thermostar plates can be used in all leading thermal CtP systems and can easily achieve runs up to 100,000 without baking. They can deliver more than 1 million impressions when baked – giving you greater job capacity.
