Short description of project
Offset processless printing plates have been introduced to the market a few years ago. They are called processless because their processing phase differs from the others, and is based on the usage of wetting solution, instead of the developer solution that has an adverse impact on the ecological environment. Despite the fact that this technology is significantly more favourable than the most environmentally friendly offset printing plates, application thereof has not yet been accepted in the industry. The reason for this is the inability to control the quality of the processless printing plates and the lack of standards which ensure the processing phase of those printing plates. Two main goals have been defined: 1. Development of laboratory methods for evaluating the quality processless printing plates; 2. Research of wetting solution that will be used for processing phase of processless printing plates in offset printing machines.
