Are you saying that the metal plate to the photopolymer won't transfer well?
Obviously, some ink will transfer but whether this will produce an acceptable and saleable printed sheet -- NO
Remember, Dycril/Cyrel plates have been around since the late 1960s, I have printed
from these plates via Dry Offset Method onto Beverage/Beer Cans.
I have same same but a little bit different that a blanket supplier just tells us:" you can use EPDM blanket for water-based coating".
Could you please tell me that is true or not? Have you tried before? If that's not true, how can I prove to them?
Looking forward to any idea with appreciated.
Hopefully it gets denied, LOL! Your pressman are going to love you for having them try that. If your Dry trapping that lamp will chew right through that material. Most swelling issues come from lamp exposure and ink. Lamp is the main source. If the units dont have sheilding or the position is against the blanket cylinder it wont matter what you try. Good luck!
