The Polydiam PLB-A4.iv Platemaker
A compact table top Photopolymer Stamp & Platemaker –
for use with Liquid & Sheet Photopolymer.
With Vacuum & 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 bearingthe 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 vacuum system)
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.
