:Energy Elite

:Energy Elite is a no-bake thermal plate designed for today’s press environment; offering full compatibility with alcohol free and alcohol replacement founts, as well as UV inks, without the need for baking.

Key benefits

  • Eliminate the need to bake. The space savings and energy savings associated with a no-bake thermal plate are considerable.
  • Durable performance. The Agfa developed double layer coating system ensures durability on-press as well as good chemical/solvent resistance.
  • :Energy Elite is suited for high quality imaging and printing.
  • Consistency: Because it is such a robust plate it will perform with predictable consistency across a range of different press conditions. :Energy Elite will tolerate substantial variations in exposure and processing with minimal noticeable effect on the final print.
  • Performance: Typical run lengths at unbaked commercial web users are in the region of up to 350,000. Baking can increase this run length by 50-100%. Under UV conditions, an unbaked :Energy Elite can achieve up to 100,000 copies.

User Profile
