Plate Care Products
Extend the lifetime of your plates by using the right plate care product. Agfa developed high-performing plate cleaners for each plate.
You want your plates to perform perfectly. Our plate care products enable you to extend their life by providing the necessary protection. Every plate needs its own specific cleaner, meeting the requirements of its unique composition. Agfa’s cleaning products are developed/selected in view of our printing plates’ characteristics to ensure maximum productivity.
All our plate cleaners remove ink and scum, desensitize non-imaged areas and provide protection during press stops.
