imagepac xtra vs bottled liquid resin No mess, no pouring resin, no spills and no need to clean up the exposure unit. No plate assembly time, no more laying film and tape and pouring resin, saving over 10 minutes on average per plate. Less waste, typically providing the user with a reduction of up to 30% in waste resin, damming tape, cover film and backing sheet. Improved inventory control by carrying only one stock item, instead of four. As it is easier to use you can delegate manufacture to less-trained staff, if needed. It provides you with benefits of lower cost, excellent image, cleanliness, faster plate processing and consistent quality.

Frequently asked questions by Photocentric

Am I restricted to one size plate? No, not at all. Pre-packaged polymer is made automatically in a total of 6 different sizes, it will always provide you with a size that wastes less resin than pouring.

Are liquid polymer pouches more expensive than bottled polymer? It should not cost you more, if anything your costs should be lower because you get a faster, cleaner, more reliable and less wasteful product. Over the years the manufacturing of the pouches has been automatic and prices have fallen.

Will I need any other equipment if I use liquid polymer pouches? imagepac xtra replaces four items normally used in stamp making: liquid resin, substrate, damming tape and coverlay. The self contained pouch replaces all of those and is it easy to handle.

Why should I use liquid polymer when laser technology is available? Laser is a big capital investment in uncertain times. You could increase your capacity, reduce your manufacturing lead time to while-u-wait and reduce your costs at the same time with imagepac xtra.

Will I need to change my cure speeds with the new liquid polymer pouches? We suggest that you use the same cure speeds as you currently do with liquid polymer and adjust if necessary. Lay imagepac on the negative so that 'imagepac' is readable. Use the same times that you currently use. Process as normal. If floor is less than 35% of total thickness then increase back exposure by 20% and repeat. If floor is greater than 50% of total thickness then reduce back time by 20%. When floor is correct, multiply back exposure time by 8 and use as your main exposure time. If fine lines wobble then increase main exposure by 10%, if reverses have filled then reduce it by 10%.
