Thermal and Violet Printing Plates

The cornerstone of printing, the quality of a plate can make or break a print run. Kodak offers a range of plates that integrate with both thermal and violet CTP devices, as well as the revolutionary SONORA XTRA Process Free Thermal Plate.

As the authorised and sole distributor for Kodak in East and West Africa, FC Group stocks and supplies Thermal and Violet Printing Plates including:

  • KODAK SONORA XTRA Process Free Plates - Unlike any other process free plates available today, this new technology breakthrough combines the performance features of wet processed plates with Kodak's market-leading process free technology. SONORA XTRA Process Free Plates go straight from the imager to the press, with no processing step in between. Printers reduce environmental impact and eliminate the costs, variability and extra steps of plate processing. Our goal is to make process free possible for all printers in our territories.


  • Cap GT - Kodak Capricorn GT Thermal Plates are ideal for cost conscious printers who need a robust digital plate for general commercial applications. Capricorn GT Thermal Plates deliver the pre-press and on-press performance you expect from a leading plate manufacturer, at a very competitive price. Kodak Capricorn GT Thermal Plates enable customers to take advantage of the accuracy, consistency and reliability made possible by Kodak’s thermal imaging technology
  • Electra XD - Designed to give you the ability to differentiate yourself over your competition, Kodak Electra XD Thermal Plates enable an environment for extremely high revolution output with the confidence of day-in-day-out consistency, exceptional press performance and versatility to adapt to most print conditions and lengths. Electra XD Plates deliver extraordinarily sharp detail and stability, reducing plate remakes and variation due to dot wear and sharpening during the press run
  • Sword Max - The KODAK SWORD MAX Thermal Plate is the one processed plate you can trust to grow your business. SWORD MAX Plates deliver excellent performance across multiple applications, with no compromises. You can say “yes” to more jobs and grow your business without having to switch between plates or sacrifice performance. SWORD MAX Plates are flexible enough to be used for commercial print, offset packaging, web, publication, book, and UV or low-energy UV applications. They also deliver superior quality on many different substrates, such as metal, PET, heavy-duty card, and more
  • Libra VP - The KODAK LIBRA VP Digital Plate is the newest addition to Kodak’s portfolio of digital plates designed to maximise sustainability for commercial printers. Sustainability requires more than just being green—LIBRA VP Plates deliver the quality and productivity you need to stay profitable, while helping you reduce both costs and environmental impact. LIBRA VP Plates are compatible with market-leading violet CTP systems and plate-line equipment. If you conventionally process plates today, you can continue to use your existing equipment, simplifying processing and reducing environmental impact by replacing your traditional developer and replenisher with a single clean-out finisher.
