The Cosmolight® NZ can be used with all water based solvent and UV inks.
Toyobo Water-washable flexo plates
Toyobo Cosmolight® CTP plates are revolutionary water-washable flexo plates that are durable to water-based ink and solvent based UV-ink. Toyobo Cosmolight® CTP plates can be used in all CTP imaging devices.
Cosmolight® flexo plates have a black layer mask as well as an oxygen-inhibition layer integrated into the plate, sealing the plate automatically for any oxygen-inhibition effects. The result is an extremely high-quality print due to a flat top dot, small dot gain and high ink transfer. Toyobo Cosmolight® CTP plates are certified by Esko for FullHD. Cosmolight® QS and QZ will outperform thermal plates and can compete with solvent-based plates on the market.
Besides an excellent print quality, Cosmolight® plates mitigate the use of hydrocarbon based solvents or even aggressive cleaning chemicals such as sodium hydroxide (‘Caustic Soca’) in prepress.
