Inspecting film at Dycril printing plate manufacturing plant
Transparent sheet of light sensitive film is inspected at DuPont's new plant for Dycril printing plates at Parlin, New Jersey. The complex technology utilized in the country's first full scale plant for making photopolymer printing plates involves combining the ultra violet sensitive plastic sheet with a metal support. DuPont has spent more than $10 million in research and commercial development of the new plates, which are finding increasing acceptance in the printing industry.
