Final inspection of Dycril photopolymer printing plate
A Dycril photopolymer printing plate gets a final check after being processed in less than 20 minutes. The plate is now ready for the press. DuPont introduced Dycril in 1957 and has invested more than $10 million over a twelve year period in the printing plate, including research and development carried out at Parlin and Wilmington and at the company's printing plate laboratory in Philadelphia. The plate, as supplied by DuPont to the printing industry, is made up of a thin layer of unexposed plastic bound to a metal sheet.
