    4) resistance to UV inks?

    I know it is a lot cheaper if you look just at plate price. But what about long term view?

    I was testing some chinese thermal plates.
    Don't remember all names.
    Some times work with Xingrahpics. Extra Melior very good for long drawing.
    Now work on Smart (or Strong. There are some of names of one plate). And i am satisfied.
    Lotem 800II

    (sorry for my english. i am foreign)

    We are using chinese thermal CTP plates branded as TP1, developer Agfa Energy Elite, CTP Screen 8300 and Screen 8200 Niagara, developing machines Kodak Mercury and Gluntz&Jensen 85 Raptor. Using them more than 2 years, results are good.
    pluses - cheap
    minuses - dusty, thick or thin more than 0.3 mm (rare), sometimes wrong geometry
    This plates are better than other chinese we've tried before - C.X.K., Huanguang, Xingraphics, and 4 or 5 other chinese plates.
    Advices: set up higher laser power on CTP and reduce the drum speed for chinese plates.

    PS: My English is not good, I know it.

    We use Huaguang plates on Heidelberg Trendsetter 3244. Developer is Kodak Mercury and we use HACO developer. I don't like this Chines plates, because they are very very dusty and we have problems also in developing time. I think plates sometimes varies from box to box.

    No way!!
    I try to use Chinese plates for 2 month.
    I get money back and send plates back because they make a lot of dirty on my Trendsetter.
    No compatiblity with UV inks,......Not good!

    I know plates from china are cheap, we only use them on such jobs that does not require that much detail, maybe a bit of tweaks and trials you may find solutions to problems encountered using this plates

    chinese plates

    There are a lot of chinese suppliers on the market but only few of them are recommandable. HuangHuang is doing good plates, they are stable and you can use them as the plates of the big 3 (Agfa, Kodak;Fuji).
    They are working on a low-chem plate in the moment, i think it is released since this month. I don`t know if they supply a UV-ink resistant plate.
    These chinese plates are working on all brands of platesetters.
    We tested them on different machines, Agfa, Heidelberg, Fuji, Cron.

    best regards

    Xingraphic, Huaguang, Starlight are more famous brand of China domestic plate. comparatively speaking. but still there is a lot of problems, such as unstable, dirty developing, low performance of press, short print-run, and etc.
    So International Brand such as FUJI Kodak Agfa will be the first choice, my point of view. since the quality is everything.

    1) Prima Therma UV, Xingraphics, DTP2, Gloria, Huanguang - no problem with any, if the plates are not expired and the right conditions of storage and transportation. May be Huanguang more inclined to scratches. Chemistry is Chembyo.
    2) Agfa Avalon LF
    3) Linearization test after change of developer
    4) Not used UV inks
