The Polydiam PLB-A4.iv Platemaker
A compact table top Photopolymer Stamp & Platemaker –
for use with Liquid & Sheet Photopolymer.
(without Vacuum or Air Blower System)
HOW THE PROCESS WORKS:
Make a negative from your artwork/transparency on the Polydiam Platemaker or a printer.
Place the negative on the exposure glass, lay cover film over it, then make a frame
around the negative using the foam strip.
Pour the liquid resin into the framed area, place the backing substrate and place glass on top.
Two exposures controlled by a timer are made. The first exposure forms the base,
the second forms the image.
The area of polymer exposed to the light hardens into a solid form. The unexposed areas
Washing in water with washout detergent removes the unexposed polymer, leaving a clear
sheet bearing the image in relief.
Re-exposure of the sheet in water produces a durable image.
Dry the sheet plate using a hair dryer.
Then cut and mount stamps and dies as required.
FOR SHEET PHOTOPOLYMER
(using a pressure pad)
1. Place polymer plate and negative in contact on the vacuum board.
2. EXPOSURE -Set timer for exposure to the irradiating UV lights.
3. WASHOUT -Once exposed, wash plate in hot water.
4. DRY -Dry plate completely.
5. POST-EXPOSURE -For final hardening and durability.
6. READY FOR USE -Cut and mount as required.
