Liquid Photopolymer Sustainability

Compared to traditional solvent sheet plates, the use of liquid photopolymer has many environmental advantages:

  • Does not use solvents or volatile organic compounds (VOC's)

  • Reclaims un-imaged photopolymer and reuses it in the process

  • Enables the creation of In-Position Plates for less material usage
