Commercial printers face competitive pressures to improve efficiency and reduce turnaround time, while increasing consistency and quality. Kodak Trillian SP Thermal Plates help printers meet these challenges with an impressive combination of outstanding productivity and performance, low total cost of use and reduced environmental impact when compared to typical digital processed plates in the market today. Trillian SP Plates feature a proprietary negative working coating that provides high productivity, strong resolution, excellent chemical resistance and image durability without the need for post baking.
Trillian SP Plates deliver sharp detail and stability for short and long run AM and FM applications, for up to 500,000 impressions, even in harsh chemical environments. They are ideal for a variety
of applications, including small and large commercial sheetfed and commercial publication (book) applications and certain heatset web, offset packaging and UV print applications.

Exceptional productivity and efficiency
Trillian SP Plates offer extremely fast processing speeds, and removing preheating and potentially postbaking improves turnaround time and the overall efficiency of the plate making process. Press makereadies are extremely efficient with Trillian SP Plates, minimizing paper and ink waste. In addition, wide latitude and stability on press mean you spend less time overseeing the process and adjusting for variations.


Reduce total cost of use

Utilizing up to 70% less chemistry* than previous plate systems, Trillian SP Plates significantly reduce chemistry, storage and disposal costs. Trillian SP Plates use a low replenishment plate solution that delivers long processing cycles and reduces overall chemistry consumption and generated waste, helping printers to minimize their environmental impact while reducing their costs.
