Fujifilm Introduces New Thermal Plate for Newspaper Market

March 2009
VALHALLA, NY—March 11, 2009—Fujifilm Graphic Systems U.S.A., Inc. announced today an addition to the company’s family of printing plates for the newspaper segment. The Fujifilm Brillia LH-NN2 thermal plate, which is designed specifically for longer runs, is now available nationwide.

“The LH-NN2 plate is an addition to our extensive line of newspaper plates and is designed for publishers who need a thermal plate compatible with the 830nm infrared lasers that many operations are using,” explains Jim Crawford, Fujifilm’s group manager for consumables.

The LH-NN2 plate has a run length of 300,000 impressions and is approved for 1-99% at 100 lpi, yielding high-quality tone reproduction and dot integrity and giving users the level of quality and reliability for which Fujifilm is known.

Like other plates in Fujifilm’s Brillia series, the LH-NN2 plate employs a double-coated photosensitive layer, which delivers enhanced durability compared to other CTP plates. The double-coated photosensitive layer also provides outstanding resistance to scratches, facilitating ease of handling in the pressroom.

The enhanced MultiGrain surface structure of Brillia LH-NN2 makes it easier to run on press with optimized ink and water balance. Wide processing latitude enables improved developing efficiency for a thermal plate that really delivers exceptional on press results.
