Chemical-free plates


Chemical-free plates

Since 2009, printing moulds (offset plates) have been manufactured by an entirely chemical-free process. 

An image is projected onto offset plates with heat lasers, and only the unheated coating is removed with a soap solution. This saturated soap solution is disposed of as waste. We opted for this system because coating elements suctioned off in the dry processing of offset plates may be harmful when inhaled.

Reduced environmental impact is better for all of us.
