Paper Abstract

This kind of plate that has an imaging layer, comprising an admixture of (1) a resole resin, (2) a novolac resin, (3) a latent Bronsted acid (4) an infrared absorber, and (5) colorant, relates to an image recording material which can be used as a material for a lithographic printing plate. The radiation-sensitive composition is sensitive to both ultraviolet and infrared radiation. The plate is intended for digital exposure with an infrared laser with 830 nm in a computer to plate (CTP) machine. The dot density of the printing plate ranges from 2 to 98 percent, and the resolution can reach 6μ. On the aspect of making printing plate these characteristics achieve acceptance criterion of printing. In addition, the level of laser energy needed to image a thermal plate is substantially higher than that needed to image today's conventional plates.
