  • US Patent:
    6794107, Sep 21, 2004
  • Filed:
    Jan 23, 2003
  • Appl. No.:
    10/349794

  • Assignee:
    Kodak Polychrome Graphics LLC - Norwalk CT
  • International Classification:
    G03F 7021
  • US Classification:
    430152, 430156, 430160, 430306
  • Abstract:
    Vesicular images are formed by thermal imaging of imageable layers containing thermally imageable vesicular imaging compositions. The vesicular images can be used as masks for imaging printing plate precursors. In one aspect, a printing plate precursor made up of a flexible substrate; a photosensitive layer that contains a negative working photosensitive composition; an optional barrier layer; and the imageable layer is thermally imaged to produce an integral mask. Blanket exposure through the mask with ultraviolet and/or visible radiation followed by development produces a printing plate. The method is especially suited for the production of flexographic printing plates.

    4302701, 4302811, 430302, 101453, 1014631, 1014501
  • Abstract:
    A negative-working imageable element has an imageable layer that includes an infrared radiation absorbing dye that upon exposure to thermal irradiation, changes from colorless to a visible color or from one visible color to another visible color, providing a ΔE of at least 5 between the exposed and non-exposed regions of the imageable layer within 3 hours of its exposure to 300 mJ/cmat a laser power of 15 Watts. The imageable element can be imaged to provide images with improved contrast for print-out. The imageable layer includes a primary polymeric binder that has a backbone to which are attached pendant poly(alkylene oxide) side chains, cyano groups, or both, and is optionally present in the form of discrete particles.

  • US Patent:
    20050139108, Jun 30, 2005
  • Filed:
    Dec 29, 2003
  • Appl. No.:
    10/747566
  • Inventors:
    Kevin Ray - Fort Collins CO,
    John Kalamen - Loveland CO,
  • International Classification:
    B41C001/10
  • US Classification:
    101465000, 347096000
  • Abstract:
    A method for forming an image useful as a lithographic printing plate using an ink jet technique is disclosed. An imageable precursor that comprises an overlayer over a substrate is imaged with an imaging agent and developed with water or fountain solution. The overlayer comprises a thiosulfate-containing polymer. The imaging agent is a polar organic liquid comprising at least one functional group selected from hydroxyl, cyano, and lactone. The method retains the advantages of using data in digital form, yet does not require expensive and complex equipment for imaging. The imaged precursor can be developed with water or on press using fountain solution.

  • US Classification:
    430/270100, 430/005000, 430/302000, 156/240000
  • Abstract:
    The present invention provides a thermally imageable film having at least one thermally degradable binder, at least one infrared absorber, and additives. The thermally imageable film is transparent and remains transparent when exposed to white light wavelengths of about 390 to 750 nm or ultraviolet light wavelengths of about 190 to 390 nm. Upon imagewise exposure to infrared thermal radiation, the thermally imageable film forms an opaque area at the point of contact with the IR thermal radiation, the opaque areas of the film being ultraviolet light impermeable. The present invention also provides for a mask precursor or a relief printing plate precursor where the thermally imageable layer is coated directly onto a substrate as well as a method of making a mask or a relief printing plate using the thermally imageable film.
