PRINTING PLATES

Printing plates are photopolymer plates that carry the image you want to print. A layer of ink then deposits in the engraved image area, the pad then picks it up and prints it on the object. There are different types of printing plates. The ones below are photopolymer plates; they are made of a thin steel plate, coated with a photosensitive gelatin, which gets developed using a U.V. exposure unit, and the film positive of the image you want to print.

The three categories of photopolymer plates are- Green printing plates: these are developed using ethylic alcohol and are best for short runs.Orange printing plates: these are developed using water and are best for short runs.Red printing plates: these are developed using ethylic alcohol and are adequate for larger productions. GTO offers the service of developing photopolymer printing plates for clients. Steel printing plates- these plates are for very high productions, these are sold already developed.
