Burnishine is delighted to announce our FBP3000 deletion pen works well with baked Agfa ECO3 Energy Elite plates! Like other baked plates, it can be challenging to find an easy, effective way to delete images.
FBP3000 has 2 tips which allows printers greater control over deletions, does not leave any residue, and does not alter the grain of the plate.
Note: Most unbaked plates should use CTP1000.
As a reminder, it’s important to use gentle pressure when making deletions. In fact, applying too much pressure can damage the plate graining, which can result in toning on press. Excessive pressure can also damage the tip causing premature wear. We recommend following up deletions with plate cleaner, such as Burnishine Aqua Blue (PCN P7 – an acidic plate cleaner and desensitizer), or Plate Care (PCN 3600) before resuming production. Plate Care is a mildly acidic finisher, cleaner and plate preserver that is compatible with any metal plate – CtP or analog.
Please contact us if you have any questions. We’d be happy to help you select the best pen for your needs.
