    Thermal CTP - Burn Plates without chemicals

    Now Im using "without chemical processing" plates.

    Azura-TS (Agfa) Chemfree (Heidelberg) ECOMAXXX (Fuji) are examples of plate.

    What result you have with this plates in your Platestters?

    Burn Plates without chemicals

    I tested the Azura plate i not just convinced me .
    I prefer the direct thermal Kodak, is revealed directly in the machine with the wetting solution.
    Leaves no traces in the system.

    I did same test but diferent result

    I test direct thermal kodak... But one thing makes me nervous.

    Time to clean plate in press. Take a lot of time to eliminate emulsion coat, in wetting sollution direct in press.

    I use online water plate cleaner. Its water wash plates and aply gum.

    I like thermal direct plates from Kodak

    Azura plates need another machine to get them developed, assuming a charge of money, space and energy.
    When the operator's hands are sweaty , the emulsion of the plate is damaged.
    The direct thermal can be touched with sweaty hands without damaging the emulsion, and do not require additional costs of money, space and energy.
    For my have more quality.
    Perhaps Thermal Direct plates are more expensive than Azura, but if you see numbers of costs, are cheaper Direct Thermal.
    If you want I can pass you an excel to verify it.

    Another Azura problem

    Low lifetime

    Azura plates have a very low lifetime. After a few days outside the box plate color changes. The ambient humidity affects plate coat, reducing his life in printer.

    Tks!

    Azura

    Hi all,

    I'm using Azura for 4 years now. It's running smooth. (produced 80000+ plates)

    About lifetime, I use it for 50.000 runs without a problem.

    We have Screen PTR series Thermal platesetter and tried to use the Azura for our web press but the run lengths were just way to low for us
