Hello All,

Can anyone tell me which correction pen to use on Kodak Thermal Direct plates? I have tried just about any correction pen we have (from the old days with standard CTF plates), but none of them work.

Anyone?

Hello,

Kodaks European Customer information manual says:

deletion pens:
Ultrachem one touch deletion pen
Pacific Chemical image remover CTP #4

I can' t tell you for the States, however.

Regards

Hello Hans-Juergen,

Thanks for your info. I contacted our supplier (Tetterode Holland), and they would contact Kodak to try and order the pen you mentioned. I hope this one works!

Thanks again!

Kind Regards... from Holland.

We have been having the same problem with deletion pens on the Kodak Sword Excel plates. None of our vendors came up with one that worked well or didn't dry out after a few uses. Our press operators use blanket fix or the stuff thats use to strip paint / varnish off of wood. It usually takes two applications to completely remove the image. In the plate room I use plate developer. I put a drop on image I want to remove and let it sit for 10 min or more then repeat again if needed.

What about Kodak Gold plates, are there any deletions pens that will work with them?

I got some information from a contact @ Kodak RE: Touching up TD's.... We've used the deletion pens w/ great success for a while, just recently had an issue that required an addition (and ordered a set of addition pens, however, we haven't used them yet).

+Here is the information:+

+Thermal Direct non process plates+

+Additions - Kodak Aqua Image addition pen+


+Deletions+
+Baseline CTP-#CTP-1000+
+ITW Marktex metal plate image remover #2201+
+A-1 deletion pen U.N. 1760 - Maple Leaf Associates, LLC+


+Short-term plate storage+
+Kodak Aqua Image plate cleaner / preserver+

I know this is a little late but we have always used "Corr-Quick" image remover pens. They work for positive and negative plates. They worked great with the Kodak Sword plates. We now use Kodak Trillian plates and these pens work great with them as well. I hope you have one that works for you! :)
A little late? Eleven years? ROTFL.

But good advice is always appreciated!
 

Color Optimized?

Ink
by Noel Ward, Editor@Large
Color is in demand in all types of documents, making color management a critical part of Digital Printing 5.0. Managing color on one device/press can be an easy task with the correct tools and processes. But managing color to ensure printed pages are consistent and repeatable across the different substrates and color gamuts of toner and inkjet can be a much bigger challenge. Properly implemented color management workflows can help achieve consistent color results across multiple devices. Although many end-customers are claiming satisfaction with “pleasing color,” two challenges are still in play. Link to Article
