Saphira Eco
Thermal Plate NA 101

Outstanding properties. The Saphira® Thermal Plate NA 101 is a unique and environmentally-friendly printing plate technology with outstanding properties for prepress and press. Technical improvements have made the Saphira Thermal Plate NA 101 much more sensitive. With the new generation  of printing plates, you can utilize the features of your platesetter to the full – for example, 38 pph for a Suprasetter® 105 from Heidelberg®.


Simple but stable process. The negative-working printing plate has a very wide processing latitude based on patented ThermoFuse technology, with the wash-out process not requiring any developer. The non-imaged latex particles are simply washed out in a plate processor using Saphira Thermoplate Cleaner NA. Unbaked plates are suitable for runs up to 200,0001 prints, while baked plates can handle runs up to 400,0001 prints.

A further benefit of the ThermoFuse technology is the low consumption of wash-out solution.


  • Eco-friendly technology: No developer or replenisher required, low chemical consumption
  • Excellent clean running cuts waste right from the startup phase
  • Maximum productivity as a result of high sensitivity
  • Excellent dot stability
  • Excellent plate contrast
