Adamas provides photorealistic image quality up to 240 lpi Sublima screening, depending on your platesetter type. Its protective overcoat prevents oxidation and eliminates ablation, guaranteeing durability and low maintenance.
Productivity made simple
A highly-sensitive printing plate, Adamas is designed to handle print runs of up to 350,000 copies. It combines fast, accurate and wide-latitude plate exposure with simple processing and robustness.
Robust and durable
Adamas allows for conventional and H-UV/LED-UV printing (with a run length of up to 75,000 revolutions) and can handle even abrasive substrates like boards. Its highlight dots are tough enough to offer a high-quality press performance even on the longest press runs.
While Adamas’ scratch-resistant surface allows for easy handling, its strong image contrast supports simple visual inspection and quality control, ensuring plates are mounted on press correctly and costly mistakes are prevented.
Adamas is a prime example of our ECO³ philosophy, replacing chemicals with a pH neutral gumming solution, eliminating the need for rinse water – especially when combined with the Adamas COU clean-out series. The result? Decreased waste production, less disposal costs and a safer work environment.
Patented ThermoLink technology
As a cutting-edge photopolymer plate, Adamas is based on Agfa’s patented ThermoLink technology. Thanks to the ThermoLink technology, the plate compounds are cross-linked without pre-heating, resulting in robustness, high image quality and optimal press performance. This swift polymerization process also ensures a predictable, sharp dot reproduction, making Adamas close to a linear plate.
