Agfa says users can expect to print up to 350,000 copies on the Adamas plate

Agfa bills Adamas as the “most durable chem-free plate available on the market”, using no water and creating up to 75 percent less waste than similar products that are currently available.

The company’s patented ThermoLink technology is at the heart of Adamas, with Agfa saying that this feature will allow users to print up to 350,000 copies on the plate.

Adamas is also able to deliver quality results on a host of applications, ranging from commercial sheet-fed and cold-set, to heat-set printing. In addition, the new plate is compatible with low-power curing UV inks.

Iris Bogunovic, product manager for thermal plates at Agfa, comments: “When we designed Adamas, we kept every need of the most advanced commercial printers in mind.

Adamas is a testament to our ECO3 sustainable innovation drivers, which bring ecology, economy and extra convenience to our customers

“The result shows innovation on all fronts—increased durability, enhanced performance and responses to the biggest market trends, such as low-power curing inks.

“Adamas is a testament to our ECO3 sustainable innovation drivers, which bring ecology, economy and extra convenience to our customers.

“With Adamas, commercial printers enjoy every advantage of chem-free printing, combined with new technology, ThermoLink, that takes press performance and process efficiency to new heights.”
