Re: Re: spots and dots and UVBL solarplates


When I first started with Solarplates (Dans stuff) I used NO LUAGHFING 3M for 
ink jet and a 1280 printer. It worked now I just don't know. I need to get 
more ink on the 3Ms but it is no easy (correction more density). I keep 
trying. The KMs are nice I just need to rething things. We will see come July.

  Hi Jan,

Thanks!&nbsp; What printer/media are you using to create your inkjetpositives?

and UV/BLBFL (for black light purple/blue in color). I am not one for letter 
but in this case it might work. A friend of mine gave me an Aristo exposure 
unit. Which is charged neon type of bulb we will see if it is any differant 
(white light not purple/blue).I tried some KM plate exposures and did not get 
a good plate the ink jet posative was to thin. Back to square 1. UV/FL 
exposure.Thanks to all of you  Jon, keith, Susan, Chris not sure who else but 
thanks with any luck (and without bad luck, I wouldn't have any) I may have 
some prints at APIS.All the bestJan PietrzakFrom: Jon Lybrook &

particularly, "UV Blacklight Tubes".  Tanning UV Tubes seem to have a better 
quality to them for poly plates, from what I've seen.  Never seen anyone using 
a big unit employing UV Tanning lights though...JonJon Lybrook wrote:        
Make that, "UV Tubes"... ;-)JonJon Lybrook wrote:              I'm quite 
convinced, along with Keith Howard, David Hoptman and others that UV isn't as 
good for poly plates as a point source -- Amerigraph, Olec, or our good friend 
Apollo.  You can get good results, but it is more problematic - especially 
when going bigger.Jon
